    Jane, Alice, Nancy and Bryan:
    My thoughts and prayers are with you. As you all know Lou will always hold a special place in my heart, that gruff façade was simply that, he had a heart the size of Texas. He loved his family and Terri. I am so thankful he, Alice and I got to have lunch at Currituck Club in April while I was at the beach. I know you will miss that big old smile and grumbling, but know that he is with his dad in Heaven. Love to you all.

    My deepest condolences to all of you. Lew will be missed by many and he will no longer suffer from diabetes and other complications, just as Sam did. Lew and your family have always been kind to me and I miss seeing all of you. In heaven, there is no pain and sorrow and now we have two more angels to look over us. May God bless all of you in your time of sorrow.
