Uncle Lou, you were a wonderful man. I feel privileged that I was able to get to know you as I did. You are and will be missed dearly. Although knowing you are in a better place doesn't take away the pain, knowing that one day we will see you again makes the days easier to face. Rest in Peace. Love always
