My deepest sympathy in this difficult time. Although it has been more than 30 years since I have seen Louis, I will always remember him as a kind and loving man who always seemed to have a little twinkle in his eye. May God hold you all very close as you navigate the next hard weeks.
Love from Cousin Barbara

I am so very sorry for your loss. I remember our families visiting and how wonderful he was with all of us children. He was a great man and I will continue to remember Uncle Louis with love.
