I only talked to Lou on the phone a couple of times as he was kind enough to call me when our mutual friend Glenn was in a motorcycle wreck. What a kind and caring man. I am so very sorry for your families loss. Praying God gives each one of you the strength to get through these next days, months, years. Reply to this comment
