June and Family, So sorry to hear about the passing of Mr. Wilson, I always thought so much of the Melton Family. You all are in my thoughts and prayers during this very sad time. It says in the Bible " To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord " I am sure Lewis is in heaven this very day with his Lord and Savior. Lean upon the Lord and he will give you peace during this very sad time..
