"Little" Louise, as I knew her, was my sister. She was married to my brother Joe and even though their marriage didn't last the test of time she was still my sister to this day. When I was younger I spent so much time at their house I guess Lou-Lou felt like she raised me along with Teri & Coni. She kept us giggling and she saw to it that we had good times. Those memories are very dear to my heart and will never be forgotten. Rest well, my sweet Lou-Lou, I love you and you will be sorely missed! Teri and Coni, I love y'all, too, God bless and keep you both.
