Crystal, Justin and Ryan:
Louis was a one of a kind gentleman with a heart of gold and a wonderful sense of humor. It was a privilege for me to have been both a practitioner to him as well as a friend. I'm so sorry for your loss..I just know he is looking down on all of us especially his children and grandchildren. God bless all of you...
