I was so saddened to hear of Louis's death although we were cousins I did not hook up until recently with Kevin and Keith. May our Lord comfort you with his grace and only good memories that are personal to each and every one of his family. I pray thee get you through this terrible time. When you think of him, always remember the relationship you had with him and all your good times. Sorry I cannot be there love you Ann
