    Louie... each of us who knew you knows you with fondness. Your strength of love and care for & of each of us who crossed your path went away a better person. God called you and you accepted His call... ...we are all blessed as a result. When I was just a boy my Mom allowed me to open the mailbox at the P.O. and I remember the twinkle in your eyes and the smile on your face when I would go to your P.O. window, and you would look down and say, "Hi Johnny Underbrush..." See you in Heaven kind sir. Love, John Underwood
