Sending lots of love and prayers to the Anthony Family! My favorite memory of Lou…I will never forget my first visit to Wheeling…we stopped at Primantis Deli to eat and to pick up sandwiches for Lou…when we arrived Lou sate down at the dinner table and shouted out my name for me to come in the room and sit down with him. As he proceeded to eat his sandwich he told me stories of his younger days when he would two of them without a problem. So, he really made me feel welcomed…he reminded me of my dad…my dad loved to eat and was always calling /shouting out one of four daughters names for something….I hope Lou and my dad connect because I think they would enjoy each other! I love you guys and am so sorry for your loss. Much love to your family!
