One of the greatest men that I have had the privilege of knowing during my lifetime. He was such a godly and decent man that I will never forget. I learned a lot over the years, during my childhood and young adulthood on how to conduct myself and treat others from watching Doil. Our familes have been forever linked, ever since I was five years old. Lou and Doil have always been like an aunt and uncle to me and my sister. I am happy that he has rejoined his soulmate, and I can only hope that there is an El Fenix in heaven for all of us to go to one day. My thoughts and prayers are always with the Dalton/Chetham families. God bless and comfort you all.
