Lou was a great man, respected by many and respectful himself; a great friend not only to me but to all of my family as well. His generosity and friendship allowed me and my family to have many wonderful memories that we will be able to look back on for years to come. His always upbeat and lighthearted personality was a pleasure and he was always fun to kid around with. He loved his family very much. We will miss him.
