      I was just thinking about Lou just the other day. He was a caring guy and my favorite NCO who I served with. A sarge who cared about his men.

    Lou was a passionate individual about his family, farm , work and doing what is right. I met him several years ago at the Simpsonville Post Office. Lou was always inquiring about why and how things were done. He would question decisions but always respectfully. He wanted to move up in the Post Office and I wanted to do whatever was in my power as his then Postmaster because of the person he was. He was loyal! When I say he was loyal, if I had asked him to take a wall, he may not be able to climb or even struggle may to walk but he would take that wall. He was a protector. There were times that he might not always tell me certain things because he would have my back and may not want to implicate me in a decision that he might have made that may not have been considered the decision of those higher up. I remember leaving one day and my knee gave out. Lou who struggled due to his knees being worn down, had me put my arm around his shoulders and he made sure I made it to my car. I thought what a baby I was when he struggled so much himself but there we was making sure I got to where I needed to be. It was a pleasure to see him succeed with his career. Although I was sad to see him leave me, I was thrilled when he was selected as the Supervisor of Lauren’s. Lou was not only loyal to his boss but also dedicated himself for those who worked for and with him. This was a man who I admire and I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to know. What a blessing that so many of us were touched by his life. You will be missed dear friend. Lauren- he adored you. Sending hugs and prayers. I so wish I was in town for this memorial. Know that you are all in my thoughts.

    Just found out about your husband’s passing this morning. I am so sorry about yours and the family’s loss. I could tell from our conversations, in your office, the two of you were very close in your relationship. It is so hard to lose someone that you depend so much in all that you do. May God bring peace to the entire family during these difficult times.

    Dear Lauren, Most of my memories of Louis are from when he was growing up. Even as a toddler he was a ray of sunshine and he loved people. He was already watching out for other people when he was a school kid . I was happy to have the chance to meet you when you and Louis visited this area, and to see you two together. I knew he had found his soul mate. I believe that your love for Louis made him just about the happiest man on earth, and I thank you for that. Love, “Aunt Nancy”

    When I met you Lauren ,I had no idea that the guy I saw every morning was your husband. I always looked forward to our meetings or encounters, always while we were working, but you both made my day great. Louie will always have a place in my heart and memories. I thank God for our fellowship.
