Dearest Ronnie, family & friends -

My heart is so very sad hearing of the loss of "Lew" as we all called him here in Texas. Just last week, God had placed him on my heart and I had taken my roladex card out to call him, but I never got around to it which breaks my heart. That is a very hard "life lesson" to learn as I so wish I would have gotten to talk to him one last time. Lew and I always stayed in touch all these many years and we shared a wonderful love for each other. I never had any regrets in my marriage to Lew. How could I? He gave me one of my greatest treasures with his youngest son, Lewis Austin Wimberley, III. The last time Lew and I spoke, he had called me to tell me of Kathy's passing and we spoke for a couple of hours reminiscing about the good ole days and how could it be that we were getting older and that someday, our time would come too. We would catch each other up on Ronnie & Little "Aut" as he called him, and how it was a shame that we all lived so far apart and were all so busy. He had planned to come down for a visit last summer, but never made it. Before our conversation ended, he had me write down Ronnie's phone number and asked me to please "keep it handy, just in case I ever needed it". I knew what he meant. He always hoped that the boys lives would settle down and they would get to know each other one of these days. He wanted Ronnie's five kids to get to know their Uncle Aut. He was so very proud of you Ronnie and spoke very highly of your wife and five children. Lew was loved by so very many and we will all miss him so very much. Please know you are all in my thoughts & prayers. Much love, Brenda Wimberley Thomas

We wish to express our deepest sympathy. I am sure he, Connie and Kathy are in Heaven reminiscing about times gone by.

I so wish I would have been able to attend the celebration of Lew's life! I'm so grateful that my husband, Jim was able to accompany Lew's #2 son, Austin to be there to pay honor to his father! Jim has been texting me and sending me pictures of the family and service and said it was a wonderful military service.

Austin is making wonderful memories in getting to know his brother, Ronnie and his wife Jen and their five children. Lew always wanted for them to get together and what JOY this would bring to him knowing his kids & grandkids that he adored were all sitting outside on his porch last night drinking beer and sharing stories about Lew.

I'm so thrilled the cousins: Connie's son; Kevin, Phyllis' daughters; Tracy & Alina and Lew's two sons; Ronnie & Austin were able to get a "grownup" picture together as the last one I have of them is over 30 years ago which also included Kathy, Connie's daughter in the picture.

I will try to get the new pictures that Jim has taken sent to this website over the weekend so all of Lew's family & friends can view them.

Lew may be gone but he will never be forgotten as he lives on in our hearts! He left behind a wonderful legacy in his two sons - Ronald Austin and Lewis Austin. I'm sure God welcomed him with open arms and said, "well done, good and faithful servant".

God bless all of you!
