My Story

Orthus Knighton Lewis IV or Buddy, earned his wings January 11, 2004. He was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, only 16 at the time he was quite the character. He would play tricks on his nurses and pull the C-card for any little thing. He was greatly loved by his family and the small community of Boerne, TX. He was surrounded by nothing but love when he entered heaven.
