A wake for Lewis, the team's director of basketball operations, will be held in Buffalo on Friday with a funeral the next morning.
Two funds have been set up in the women's memory. Checks should be payable to the University of Richmond and designated to the Ginny Doyle Memorial Fund or the Natalie Lewis Memorial Fund.

The crash came during the inaugural Mid-Atlantic Balloon Festival at Meadow Event Park. The remainder of the festival was subsequently canceled.
Doyle was a two-time all-conference player at Richmond who graduated in 1992. She led the Spiders to the 1991 CAA Championship and NCAA Tournament and is the program's career leader in free throw percentage. She set the NCAA Division I record for consecutive free throws made with 66, a mark that stood for 18 years.
