Dear Sandy, I am so sorry for your loss. You and Lou opened your home to my husband, and myself for our marriage class through St. Vincent’s about 13 years ago. My husband wasn’t so sure why we had to do this, but because of your hospitality and welcoming natures we stayed until about 11 pm, and I had to keep reminding him, that it was time to go! You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Lou and I worked bingo, Beast of the East @ Elm Grove Civics. Always enjoyed being with Lou & Sandy on bus trips to various casinos with the Civics. Lou was a jovial, mild mannered, likeable guy.
