Dear Sharon and Ken,

I just read of your father's passing away. Obviously, at 102 he lived a long life, but it is never an easy thing to lose a parent. I send my love and deepest condolences.

Love,
Corey

Lou had these big inviting eyes that were always friendly to me. He used to do this thing with his two index fingers that was always very funny and youthful to me…he was like dancing with out moving
We met 20 yrs ago when i started
dating his granddaughter lindsey. We shared meals at egg harbor and holidays in chicago and florida. His 102 yrs on this earth was a blessing. I’ll miss you lou. Keep dancing! Love, David
