Dear Rose and Ann. I was sorry to hear about Louie. I didn't get to stop in yet, this summer. I have nothing but good memories of Louie. He sure was patient with all us kids, as we were growing up. Hard to realize we were pestering him (and you) since 1946! I am thankful that he had his wits until the end. Louie was a hard worker and a great gardener. He will be missed.
