    You were a very special Uncle. I will always remember the time you came to California with Grandna Rose and Aunt Irene to visit with us. At the time it was the four girls, Norma, Cheryl. Melanie and me. It must have been in 1960. You went to the Los Angeles County Fair and played all the games and from what I heard spent all your money winning prizes. You brought all four girls each a different size stuffed panda bear. You will always be in my heart.

    You were a great son taking care of Grandma, a great brother taking care of Aunt Irene, a great Husband loving Marie. You always took the time for my Mother Theresa and all of us nieces and nephews.

    You will be greatly missed Uncle Louis but we know you are in the loving arms of Marie and all of your family who have made a place for you in Heaven.

    Love June
