Lou, you were a great dancer, excelled at facial expressions that said so much with no words needed, and made scrapbooking cool way before it was a "thing". You exuded love for your family and friends so freely. I consider myself lucky to have been in your presence and to have felt that love as a kid, teenager and adult. Thanks for the laughs and fun for so many years. You are deeply missed. xoxo, Amy

Judy and I are sadden at the sudden passed of Lou. We had great times together watching our boys play Baseball. The fact that our team of young men are still in touch with each other is a testament to what kind of coach and Father Lou was.

Rest In Peace my friend.
