Submitted story



Buzzy Moore, Veteran Services Officer in Champaign County and Frank Lewis, Owner of Walter & Lewis Funeral & Cremation Services announced today that Walter & Lewis has made available over $1.5 million in death benefits for veterans of Champaign County. The Veterans Appreciation Program is offered by Walter & Lewis to all veterans as a way of saying thank you for your service to our country and provides a $500 discount/credit for funeral services provided by Walter & Lewis Funeral & Cremation Services. “We owe our service men and women a debt we can never fully repay.” says Frank Lewis. “This is just a small way for us to show our appreciation for those that have served our country and our freedom.”

“We appreciate the generosity of Walter & Lewis Funeral & Cremation Services.” says Buzzy. “Their recognition of the sacrifices veterans have made and their willingness to financially assist them with a service we all need is an outstanding benefit for all of our veterans. The value of this benefit and program to veterans almost doubles when you research the cost of a funeral and find that Walter & Lewis is $200-$500 less than other providers in the area even before the $500 veteran discount, which makes the total savings for veterans between $700-$1,000 for their services.”

This program applies to both at-need and pre-need arrangements. For more information on the Veterans Appreciation Program you can contact Frank Lewis at 653-4227.
