My prayers go out to the Bauer Family. I will always remember Louis and what a great family all of you are. Enjoyed many conversations with Louis while working with him in the 4-H Food Booth and serving with him on 4-H Council. The community has lost a great man. I am so sorry I could not attend the services, I was out of town when I learned of this, but my thoughts and prayers were with all of you.

So sorry to hear of Louie's passing. He was such a kind man. I enjoyed getting to know him over the years. He was so good with his grandchildren and brought Jordan to my storytimes for many years (often bringing his wonderful cookies too). My prayers are with your whole family. Clata Raines

I'm so sorry to hear of Louie's passing. I had so much fun with him at the fair. I'll always remember his apple pie and him judging them for me. All the help he gave to my kids and grandkids with their chickens and rabbits just couldn't of been done with such care as he gave by anyone else. I wish I could be there for his service as I was for your mothers, but I just found out and can't get off work. My prayers go out to all of the family. Jo Kinne and family, Dansville, mi.

Our sympathy to the Bauer families. Your dad was a special man. I am sure he had 4/H running through his veins, he has touched so many lives with his wisdom and dedication. He will be missed by all who knew him.

So sorry to read of your passing Louie. I lived just down the road from you. Eddie and I went to the Dillingham country school. I remember going to your place for dances and ice skating with hot chocolate. And something for 4-H. We went to the Square Dance in Webberville and all those things were lots of fun. Haven't seen you in a long time. You will be missed a lot.

My mother, Velma Marie Farmer loved Lou so much. My mother and Gerald were cousins. As a child, when we spent time with the Bauer family, I remember Lou as a kind, gentle human being. I am very sorry for your loss.
