Louie was a great friend with a gentle soul. He always sought me out in a crowd to speak to me and we always found something of substance to talk about. I didn't get to visit with him as much as I would like but as we got older, time seemed to get away and it was harder to get things done. May God bless his soul and be with Nell and the other family members. He'll be missed by all who knew him.
