Lou and Iris were both such wonderful people. God bless them. It is up to us all to follow their example. They showed us how to do it, and it behoves us to learn from their excellent example. It would be selfish of me to say they are missed. I am grateful for having known them. They lived such full lives. I know I am not the only one who feels that way. They encouraged lives. Love - Jim Guarino and family

I have very fond memories of staying at uncle Lou and aunt Iris's house one summer with Tom and Veronique while they went away on a short trip and take care of the animals, picking and eating the delicious home grown vegetables. It was such a treat!
