Condolence & Memory Journal

I just assumed cause he was younger than me his passing would be after mine. Louie was a person you were always glad to see he was a good guy. I remember my grandmother MA Hazard asking Louie what he saw a the drive-in now Louie was not old enough to go to school yet, since he had trouble pronouncing the word Dalmatian, he said 101 dam dogs. My grandmother did use the word dam, but she told everybody that story. RIP I hope to be with you on the other side.

So so sorry to hear this tragic loss . We have so many memories with Lou over the years at Hall Brothers, etc. He was so much more a friend than an employee always there for Karl no matter what. We were blessed to have him
in our lives. My kids love him like an uncle and we are all so heartbroken to hear this sad news. He was the salt of the earth to me and our world got a little less colorful without him in it. I've already missed you Louie til we meet again Godspeed my friend. Julia, Jacob, Lewis and the rest of the family, our hearts are with you.

I am so saddened to read that Louie has died. He was a a really good person. Though he was a lot younger than I, I always enjoyed seeing him. I hung around with Betty Ann and Buddy, but I always thought of Louie as a little brother along with Bruce and Vickey. It is a part of life I know, but it hurts to see such a good person, one that you have known all their life die. I have so many good memories about Louie. God bless him and his family. DAVID TOLSON

I am so sorry for your families loss of a truly great man. Working with him for many years, but carrying furniture was never really work when Louie was on the truck. I will miss you dearly my friend.

Dear Julia and Family, We are sorry for your and loss . Lewis is fondly remembered of taking a 'pivotal '
role by his willing participation. He carried more than his share of any load and by his quiet example encouraged others close by - they could do the same. We honor and miss Lewis. Mass Piano and the Evans families. Worcester
