    I am so glad the kids and I were finally able to meet you – even if only once just a few short years ago.

    Thank you for sharing your love of the Marines and your hobby of making models. The kids will treasure your gifts and cards, and we will all treasure our VanSickel heritage and the impact you have made.

    Godspeed, Lewis.
