Condolences

I moved here a yr ago & became friends with Loui a week later. As we talked I found out I had moved into his apartment that he had just moved out of. The more we talked & got to know each other, the closer we became.I soon found Loui, as he would tell me not Louis, to be very funny & humerous. I would cook & we would have dinner together at times or we would watch a movie he rented or just talk. The more we got to know each other I realized what a great & interesting man he was. We would have very personal conversations, as I knew that we could trust each other with trust & confidentiality. Loui was/is a dear friend & appreciated him for who he was. I would like to say I know he will be missed by all that he touched with his heart, laugh, humor & words. I will never forget Loui & think of him often. God bless ur family & be with each & everyone of you as you grieve. Julie Houchin
