Louis has become one of my new best friends in the last year. I met him at trivia and played with him and Mary at times. In the last few months we have been meeting about once a week at Dragon Garden to eat. He was very smart and was very good at trivia. I noticed several times when he did not know the answer, he would start thinking logically and come up with the right answer. He had a great personality, sense of humor and a big heart. We ate Tuesday at The Dragon Garden, I had no idea that would be the last time. So sad. I will miss you my friend.

Louis, my Great Uncle, was a very intelligent and kind person. I always enjoyed reading his stories about Civil War history on Facebook, seeing pictures of his grandchildren, and conversing with him over news and other topics. I remember sending him my commencement invitation and knew he was very proud to see that I had graduated from college. Louis was a intelligent, kind, special person and will be greatly missed.
