Mrs.Lewis was a wonderful teacher and she will be missed. From: John Tweel Jan 18 2020 12:54PM I have such wonderful, happy, fond memories of dear Cousin Gail as we grew up together as part of our Grandfather John Tweel's family in Huntington. We enjoyed many big family dinners and celebrations together. She always had a quick smile, a friendly word, a good laugh and enjoyed life so fully. It was always such fun to be with her. I will truly miss her; I’m sorry we lost touch for so many past years. But I know for certain she is free now and smiling again.

My sincere condolences to Rebeca and Rocky. May God rest her soul.
