Memories Timeline


  1. Louis was a very knowledgeable man who loved to share his knowledge with anyone who would listen. He lived in Cedars Condo building for many years and knew and remembered the by-laws from many years back. I have moved from Cedars Condo but whenever I would see Louis I was sure to receive a hug and get caught up on what was going on at Cedars! I personally will miss you Louie and will miss seeing you at Cash Wise! Rest in peace Louie. You had a good run!

  2. Mucha family. May the precious memories shared with Louis ease your pain of heart. Draw comfort with the hope of seeing him again in a better world as solidified with this promise: “And he (Jehovah) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will morning nor outcry nor pain be anymore”. Our sincerest condolences.

  3. Rest In Peace Dad. I already miss our Sunday morning chats. You taught me a lot and I love you.
