    I have photos of the Visitation and funeral but I don't think it would be appropriate to post them here. However, Lewis' daughter, Laura, who I remember from 30 years ago as a beautiful young girl, so proud of her talented father at most Mastercon conventions, basking in her father's glory...

    My Buddy Lewis Pruneau Part 03

    Hi Robert, It was a coincidence I posted part three two days before Lewis passed away. He had been calling me daily and I read the comments to him.
