So sorry to hear about Louis. He was a very dear friend of my Mom's. I've heard many stories over the years. I also remember him from RDHS. Although, he didn't teach me, he always had a kind word to say in the hallways. May he rest in peace.

Chris, Sally and Family...I am so very sorry for the loss you are all feeling today. Louis to me was everything a gentleman should be with such a kind heart for his family as well as ours. Many a day he would drop by after school at which time he & Mom would have great chats over a cup of tea. Safely now in God’s arms.
