Memories so many. Most recently visiting you and you taking me to grandma's grave. You showed me Aunt Bernadette's as well, seeing your eyes sparkle with love when you look down at her headstone. I remember , while visiting for a week during Christmas time in the 70's, a porcelain ceiling light fixture fell on my head while playing a board game with Sean. You ran up the stairs so quick wondering what the hell the noise was, and made sure i was ok.
You always treated me as one of your own.
RIP Uncle Lou.
Prayers lifted up to all of my cousins and their families during this time.
I wish I could be there to hug all of you.
God Bless.
Kenny, Jr.

Will truly miss you, Pops. Really enjoyed and will miss our conversations about politics, religion, current events, and the many stories and jokes you told. The time you met Debbie Reynolds when you were in the army stands out in particular. And, of course, always grateful for your service to our country. Rest in Peace, my friend. Sincere condolences to all surviving family members.
