To Barbara Scheyd Sanel and all of her loved ones. My deepest sympathy for the loss of your Dad. I think about Louis frequently and remember how much I enjoyed teaching and skating with your Dad. He always, always had a smile on his face. He was such a gentle soul. I also noticed your mom's passing was 2014. I was not aware. The sorrow you are feeling is a testament to the life he lived. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your loved ones in this time of sorrow. Blessings to you all. Claudette and Michael Sullivan
