Thank you from Diane Lewis

To everyone who sent me retirement wishes and to all of those who were able to attend my retirement celebration, I wanted you to know your thoughts and kindness mean so much to me. There are so many of you that I consider my LCC family and friend, and you will remain in my heart as I start this next phase of life.

With a warm heart and much love, Diane Lewis
