My name is Candy Wathen, and I am Lewis's former wife. Thank goodness I am also his long-time close friend and he is mine. And no one could ask for a better friend, as everyone who knew him knows. Lewis had a heart attack a week ago and was in the hospital for a few days, then released. He died at home soon after his discharge. He has a sister, Diane Padgett, in South Carolina, but as far as we know he did not have burial insurance, a will, or any saved resources. I am creating this go-fund-me account to help Diane pay for his final expenses. I know he has SO MANY friends in Crosby - from the rodeo, the Chamber, EMS, the police and sheriff's department, and so many individuals! (He used to talk about y'all all the time, and loved you!). And I know many of you are in shock over his passing and probably wondering what you could do. This is a way to send Lewis off with the respect and love we all feel. I hope to raise enough money for him to be cremated, and his ashes sent to his sister in South Carolina. Because Lewis did not have a will, I expect she will also need to get a probate attorney, so I hope to raise enough to cover that as well. Thank you so much for anything you can give to help. God bless you all.
