So many of you have asked what you can do. We want to place a commemorative bench in Washington Park, where Lew walked with Grace everyday.   If you would like to help us, thank you.  Feel free to leave a memory or message. Any funds exceeding the cost of the bench will be donated to the Wheelwright Museum in Santa Fe, NM.

Last Wednesday Emily and I met with the director of the Wheelright Museum in Santa Fe New Mexico. Because of all of you we were able to make a sizeable donation with money raised over the cost of the bench we originally set out to raise funds for. The museum will make a purchase for the collection in honor of Lew's memory which would have made him happy and proud. We both miss him more than words can say and hope that the new memories you have helped us create here will bring us some comfort with time. So I am now going to try to figure out how to close this campaign. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.

The bench is a reality ! For those of you who know Washington Park it is located on the west side of the large center field just north of the small tennis courts. I have added pictures. The parks department insures me the graffiti that just appeared will be removed.

Thank you all. I am also meeting with the Wheelright Museum next month to finalize that donation. Lew would be overwhelmed at all the care and support you have given Emily and I .

I am leaving the campaign running until I finalize the Wheelright donation.

Progress! We think we have selected a bench in Washington Park and will keep this open until we have confirmation and can share a picture and the location. Thank you again for your kindness and support.

A bit of good news we have received the application for Lew's bench and have returned it to the proper department so the slow wheels of bureaurocracy are slowly beginning to turn. That said the days for Emily and I are long, slow, sad and filled with tears. We miss him terribly. All of you are making this memory of Lew possible and we are grateful for all the support.
