Condolences

So sorry for your loss, Phyllis. We have such wonderful memories of Lou - as do our kids - as an official, van driver, parish family, and as an always smiling man who took time to tease the kids a little whenever we encountered him. We were all so fond of him.

Phyllis—We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers at this sad time for you and your family. So many happier memories flood our minds at a time like this. Especially your time at St. Mary’s through the years. You were a blessing for us to know. We hope you can find peace and feel God’s love at this time.

Phyllis and family, Our most sincere sympathy. Lou will always be remembered as one of the best. Always a smile for the girls and coaches. He truly enjoyed umpiring and it showed. Everybody loved Lou.

Phyllis, and your entire family, including Lou's family as well. You were a splendid caregiver, and I am so sorry Lou is gone from this earth, but not from your heart. Much love!

Phyllis, I did not know about Lou passing. Cassie Anderson had called me and that’s how I learned about Lou.
Miss you and much love to you and family. You have been an excellent wife and he loved you
GOD BLESS YOU.

Phyllis and kids. Such great testaments here of Lou. He was a kind guy with a smile on his face, active in his community, and I called him a friend. I enjoyed the time spent with you guys in Florida and was appreciative of his tolerance of my very spoiled pup, Sophie. I will be in touch. Love you.
