Uncle Lou,I cant put into words the sadness I have in my heart that you're no longer here with us. My heart breaks for our family,we suffered so much heartbreak the last few years and here we are again. I know we didnt share a tight bond but you are family and you were loved. I do find some comfort in knowing you are no longer in pain or suffering. My heart goes out to your wife Gail and family as well as your sister's who again lost a piece of their hearts. Watch over the family as you may not be here physically,we will always need you along side us. Give my pops a big hug from me. Rest in peace❤
