  1. I knew Mrs Eleanor Lewis for a long time from her Daughter Teri. Mrs. Eleanor Lewis and I had long conversations and laughs.. She was a absolutely a Strong Woman of Faith. After my Car Accident, I was attending the same therapy as her Husband Mr Lewis, When Mrs Eleanor Lewis saw me, she said ” Don’t You ever Stop Smiling and Don’t Give Up” She said she”Loved Me” for being Teresa’s Friend and Keep Fighting to walk again..Her words stayed with forever.. She was like a Second Mother, always encouraging me to Keep my Faith and to keep encouraging Teri. I will miss her Smiles and Laughter. I remember when I was at Bible Way for the New Years Even service; She had me laughing so hard whispering in my ear.. Because Mrs Eleanor Lewis’s Birthday fall on New Year Day I sung softly in her ear Happy Birthday.. She Whisper Back, “Thanks for being Teresa’s Friend” .. I love you Always My Beautiful and Sweet Mrs Eleanor for encouraging Me..
