I had the pleasure of meeting Lou only once at an event at the Fort Mitchel site. I was the only one there and he gave me a wonderful tour of the site. He was so excited about all that was happening on the island in regard to the Zion Chapel of Ease site. Just a pleasure to meet this kind man. I am very sorry to hear of his death, it is a loss to all of us here!
Although my dear friend of 55 years, Laurette, was married to Lou for 18, I only had the pleasure of knowing him for the past few. In my mind's eye I picture him as being relaxed, gracious, funny and a great conversationalist who always enjoyed being with his family and friends. Thank you, Lou, for being such a loving companion to my friend. I will miss you.
Please accept my condolences in the loss of Lou. Having gone through it myself recently I can understand what you are dealing with right now. Just know he is no longer suffering and he and Bill are up there having a great Italian meal together.
