 Wednesday, December 21, 2016


The family of an Oakland teenager is suing the city one year after a fallen tree limb killed their son at Lake Merritt near Fairyland. Those who knew him say this area near the lake makes them feel closer to 16-year-old Jack Lewis. "He was a wonderful person, he loved life and always saw the bright side of everything," Lisa Lewis said. Parents and friends of Lewis returned to a hillside near Lake Merritt where the site has become a memorial for him where he is remembered for being authentic and adventurous.
