Lou was and will continue to be missed from our neighborhood (Amherst Street). He always had a smile and good cheer to share with us . He and Sandy made us feel so "at home"when we moved to Winchester. We celebrate his life - a loving husband, father and grandfather and friend to many. Our thoughts and prayer are with you all.

A class I teach about aging spent a lot of time at the Winchester Active Living Center, and Lewis was one of our favorites there. He was always eager to get to know our students and spend time with them. Two of our students were his partners for a project this past spring, and wrote him touching letters I'd be happy to ask them to share with the family. Please email me at [email protected] if you would like them.

Lew was a big supporter of our music (The Happy Times Musical Review) at the Winchester Senior Center. He even helped bring in and take out our sound equipment when we entertained twice a month at the Active Living Center. Connie and I will sincerely miss Big Lew. Out love and prayers go out to all of the Holmes family.

Connie and I sang several songs today as a tribute to Lew. We knew how he like Big Band music so we did "Sentimental Journey" and Frank Sinatra's "My Way". We also had everyone at the Winchester Senior Center sing along to the traditional southern gospel song "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" in honor of Lew.
