We were very saddened to hear that Lewonna passed away. It was only after the funeral service that we learned of her death. Lewonna was a faithful, dedicated,loyal employee and friend for many years. Her loving spirit and compassion for others was shared among our staff and patients, all of which found great comfort in her motherly love and words of wisdom. Her admired administrative skills contributed greatly to making Howard Dental the success it was. Her great love for her children, grandchildren, and sisters was evident in the way she proudly shared stories about you all. Our heartfelt sympathy to the entire family. May God's grace sustain you .
