Dear Uncle Louie, You are a treasured husband, father, grandfather, uncle and much more. The last time I saw you was in Florida where we celebrated your birthday. You were having a great time and smiling. That’s the memory I will keep with me. I am so glad you had those months of sunshine. My dad remembers how you two worked together when he drew plans for a building you built. My mom remembers you and Jean getting ready to be married since Jean was the last one to leave the Florio home. I remember how you and Jean gave my parents a 25 th wedding anniversary party because I was in college and really couldn’t do it. Thank you. I also remember you were there at their 50 th anniversary party and took a film of the whole thing and gave us the VCR tape. I’m taking that now to be converted to D VD. Thanks to you we have those memories. Wait for all of us in Heaven and we will join you one day. Thank God you are pain free and at peace. We love you Uncle Louie. Lisa

Uncle Louie,
You were always so caring and loving to all the family. You were not only the rock of your family but all the extended family. As a kid I remember when you took me, Marc & Rich to a Met game. It was the first time I had ever gone to a baseball game. Also the time when we went to Disney and my son wanted a toy car & he said to you “do you have 20 bucks”. You bought him the toy car!! I always enjoyed spending time at your house (Camp Carratu!)
I will always cherish the memories and the time spent together with you.
I will miss you very much. I love you so much.
Love your niece
