Prayers for my family, so hard for this time of loss. It was great to see my cousins their for his last moments. I would love to know my kids would be there in those times. Bless you Greg, Gary, Lorie, and Gail.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. I prayandels wrap their wings around you as you go through this painful time. Love always...

So very sorry for your loss.

Gary, Greg, Laurie, and Gail - I am so sorry for your loss and please know that you and your families will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Sorry for your loss. Will keep your family in my prayers.

So sad to lose such a fine man as Louis. He did quality work at both of the places I've lived in Wayne County, landscaping, driveway, and the base for a barn. You could always depend on Louis to do a top quality job. He did not need transits or fancy devices to complete jobs. He just had the KNACK. In later years I got to know him quite well, and it is so true -- he LOVED his work, even when supposedly in Florida on retirement!

You will be missed, Louis.


I miss you Dad. Always in my heart. Love you lots

Our condolences and prayers go to Louie and Norma's family and friends. Unfortunately, vehicle problems and related complications kept me from attending services. Louie was a great friend and I know he is resting with the Father in Heaven and reuniting with Norma. Philippians 4:4> is my favorite place to read God's word for comfort and strength.
God bless your hearts,
Stan and Charli
