Our families have been intertwined for so many years, and our dad and mom love and respect your dad so much! We have never known a man like Louie, he is truly a treasure and a blessing to all who had the good fortune to meet and get to know him! He would brighten the darkest days. He is a shining light, with a sincere and sunny disposition, and carried a special joy with him that he shared with everyone that crossed his path! This world was a better place for having had him here and his presence will be missed for the rest of our days. The pure joy he expressed when he spoke about his family, and the enormous pride he felt for his boys was so special! Thank you for sharing him with us all these years! We will miss his incredible tales and funny stories, his smile and his laughter! He will always hold a special place in the hearts of the Breton Family. God bless you during this difficult time.
