Louie, I will always remember the good ole' days of when we were young. I use to love to hear you sing, and you would bring the band home to practice- I really enjoyed those days. You have a beautiful voice. Just keep singing - I know Teresa and Kimberly will find you. RIP. Love, your long lost sister- Linda.

PS: Louie, here is your late Mother, Me, Jue Jue and Megan (your niece and grand niece). You will be missed.
