Celebrating the life of Lewis R. Gallimore
Thank you for signing Lewis R. Gallimore's Guestbook
Our deepest and sincerest condolences to the family. Words alone can not ease the pain when grieving the loss of a love one. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". May God give you and your family comfort in your loving memories and in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they resurrected as per John 5:28-29. May these words give you a new hope, with deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.

Barry and I became friends in Junior high school! I met Lewis and Judy when Barry was living at home, both Lewis and Judy always made me feel welcome and part of the family! Sometimes on Saturday I would go over and eat breakfast with them, that was always a treat because there was a lot of good food, but you had to be quick and dig in with Lewis and three other growing boys at the table! Lewis always made me feel welcome, Lewis was a strong man with a firm killer hand shake. Lewis will be dearly missed I know. But we know where he is walking the streets of gold, Like I say about my daddy and I know it applies to Lewis too, they are not dead or deceased. Lewis and my daddy were both God fearing Christian men who have gone to be with the Lord in heaven! And for us that believe in Christ we shall see them again soon! That is the Hope and comfort that gets me out of bed everyday! I will be praying for comfort for my friend Barry and all of his family!
