Will always remember that beautiful smile and twinkle in his eye.
One of our favorite memories was introducing Uncle Lou and Aunt Rosie to Dennis in Key West.
Many memories are mingled with laughter and tears.
Love you and will miss you

My favorite Mass at St. Vincent is 5pm Saturday. The pew is always
the last one with Rosemary and Lou. Through the years, I look forward to seeing them and Lou’s
huge smile and occasional wink—
that looked a bit impish.
We will miss you Lou. The last pew will never be the same but
you will always be there in memory.
Go with God, my friend, that
smile is all you need!

Louie was a great friend of my family---Pete and Benny D'Andrea. What fun times we had and so may funny memories we shared. Louie always was having a party of some sort for all his friends and what a party so much love and laughter. One time he held a Christmas party and all the men were to wear neckties and when they came in he would come up and welcome them saying -"do you like your neck tie and always the reply yes, and he would say so do " and he would cut it off and put in on his Christmas tree. Always a fun time with Louie. Fourth of July parties at the lake cottage -you had to hide from the fire crackers being thrown at you--but no one ever got hurt---riding the bob sled behind a car always laughter to see who would be the one tossed off on the tail. This is how I remember Louie and my husband Pete bought my engagement and wedding ring from his store, and can't forget his mother Marie-one night she had made a special dish for the dog Tony (my daughter was named after that dog)--she went to bed and some of us girls were hungry and thought she had made meatloaf---and so started eating it and she came down stairs and saw what we were eating and she said " oh my god you are eating Tony's dog food not meatloaf" and we spit it out----but she never got mad at us she was a sweetheart to put up with all the parties held at her home--and the boys loved her like their own mother I know my brother-in- law Benny did as she was mom to all the boys.---Welcome home to heaven Louie as I know many of your friends are happy to see you again. Wonder if there will be a party---God Bless you and thanks for the wonderful memories locked in my heart. See you again someday dear friend. Patty
