Please accept our sincere condolences regarding the passing of Uncle Louie....We will miss his gentle smile and big hand shake....I personally will remember the conversations we had regarding mowing grass and riding mowers(tractors)....I have been told that I like to eat and perhaps this is true. But, I will always remember Uncle Louie's plate just as full as mine at family reuions...I think we both liked home cooking...Jerry
