Robyn and Family. Our heartfelt condolences to the entire family. We came into the circle of the Lewis family by moving onto the same floor in our building. Luck would have it and we made a great connection. The gentlemen would lunch on Fridays and they told stories and shared experiences. This year has been difficult and our thoughts and prayers are with you all. May his memory be a blessing. We wish you strength and courage as you face these days ahead. All the best. Marsha and Alan Megitt.

Leon will be greatly missed. He was a real gentleman and such a wonderful mentor to me when I first started in business. He was so willing to help me with anything and get me reading his technical material. He really inspired me to become a real professional advisor. He always had a great smile and cheery voice with that incredible South African accent. I would always look forward to seeing him at any conference or event. The Almighty broke the mold when he created Leon Lewis. His memory should be for a blessing. Regretfully I'm out of town and cannot attend the shiva but please know that I would have if I was in town. You should only know from simchos and wishing you a long life. Mark Halpern
