    I met Louie at the VFW in DeLand. Although I only knew him for a few years he left an impression on me. He always had a smile on his face and loved to laugh. He enjoyed Life. My deepest sympathy to his family. He will be greatly missed. RIP my friend

    Although I never knew Louie, I know Frances….which means Louie had to have been on the “awesome/incredible/hilarious/self sacrificing” scale…Lucy, I don’t know you very well but what I do know is that you, Frances and Aunt Ron have always treated me with so much love and care. Thank you. To all 3 of you - I am so sorry you lost your brother and brother-in-law. I’ve been praying and will try to continue. I love you all.♥️
