Please accept our sympathy on the passing of Mr. Louie. He was always friendly and kind to me. My fondest memories were the conversations about sports and other current events when he worked in the cleaners. I would often get called down for leaving my car parked too long on the curb. Always remember he was proud of you. Our prayers are extended. Lee, Carol, Joseph and Amelia
