Celebrating the life of LoAnn Lewis
Thank you for signing LoAnn Lewis's Guestbook
I might not have been a part of her life in the later years but as her oldest and perhaps her only daughter I would like to pay respect to those left behind. My deepest sympathy to those who loved her most.

I am so sorry for your loss, sickness and death is an enemy of God, he promises to do away with sickness and death one day soon. Revelation 21: 3,4. The God of the Bible is a loving God who can provide comfort to the mourning ones, those lowly in heart and provide encouragement and strength. 2 Corinthians. 1: 3,4.
May comfort and peace be with your family and friends.

I am so saddened to hear that Lo Ann has passed. When she lived in Ohio, she used to come into the gas station I worked at everyday. She made my day so much brighter just by coming in and talking to me. During the holidays, she would always invite me over to eat. She knew my mom was a nurse and often had to work 12-14 hours on holidays and Lo Ann didn't want me to be by myself. She was just such a caring and kind hearted person. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. She will be missed dearly.

Kathy and Jeff... Been a long time and many miles from Kettering. I remember yourselves and of course LoAnn most fondly. Of all the things I would have imagined to greet me online, the absolute last thing I would have wanted to see was the notice of her passing.
LoAnn left her imprint on many lives, as you know. From what I've read, she led a terrific life surrounded by people that loved and cherished her.
What more could any of us ask for?
Please accept my condolences on the loss you and the other members of her immediate and extended family have encountered.
A bright and shining light extinguished in our world has gone forward to illuminate the world to come. Peace be with you all.

I offer my sincere condolences to the family and friends of LoAnn Lewis. After the death of a loved one, you might be confronted with a number of overwhelming emotions, including shock, numbness, and sadness. The Bible offers a source of comfort. "Throw all your burden on Jehovah himself, and he himself will sustain you." (Psalm 55:22) God's Word, the Bible provides the greatest comfort of all. It has helped me and I know it will help you during your time of grief. The Bible also holds a promise for mankind. Please look up these scriptures in your copy of the Bible to learn what this promise is. (Revelation 21:3,4; Isaiah 25:8; 1 Corinthians 15:26) And for more information please visit jw.org.

Lo's Favorite poem carried by our grandfather, Chad Beeba in his wallet for the better part of his life. He would read this to us as kids and young adults.
Desiderata by Max Ehrmann:
Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
