    Dear Maryanne, Janet, and the rest of the Suhr family,

    I really got to know Lou from Adam’s sports. He rarely missed a practice and I don’t think he ever missed a game. He always had a ‘Hello’ and a smile. He is certainly one of the toughest people I’ve ever come across. Lou fought through so many health issues to make sure he was still able to watch his grandchildren!

    Maryanne is also one of the strongest people we know — a great role model for strength, commitment and perserverance in a marriage.

    Our hearts go out to Maryanne, Gary, Shari, Janet and the entire family.

    We hope the memories we have of the Suhr family helps ease your grief.

    Thinking of you,
    Brenda & Ron Westrick
