I am so sorry for your loss. I am a former student of Mrs. Lewis and I just wanted to let her family know how amazing of a person she was. She was such an inspiration to me and such an amazing teacher. She is the reason I am going to school for education. She helped me work through so many things whether it was my math homework or the loss of my dad, she was always there for me. I could always count on her and she will be missed. She taught me so many things and I will cherish those lessons for the rest of my life. I would like to express my deepest condolences, and her family will be in my prayers.

I woukd like to express my deepest sympathy to the family of our beloved Mrs. Lewis. She was the most kindhearted 6th grade teacher one could ever ask for. Many of my art projects have been treasured by myself or my parents for the past 35 years. From calligraphy to yarn art, she found a way to connect with every student. She helped me through one of the most challenging times of my life when we almost lost our mom. I will never forget her comforting words and hugs. I have used that to be the best school counselor I can be with my middle school students. May the memories of her bring you comfort in knowing she made made a difference in my life and the lives of many at St. John-Sacred Heart School.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Val was a very devoted teacher who gave so much of herself to her students at St. John-Sacred Heart School. She was very kind, taking time to listen to each student, and make them feel important. To the family of Val, you have my deepest sympathy.
