Dear Sis, Art, David. Chani and Rachel. Andrea and I are so sorry to hear that Louie passed. May his Neshama have an Aliyah and his memory be for a blessing.

The fond memories of Louie while growing up will forever be etched in my heart. Louie was a kind person with a keen sense of humor.

Jim and Wendy Cash

Louie and I (Jim) spent our last time together at Rocky Mountain National Park where we went for coffee and breakfast and we could not find our way out and ended up spent the night in my van until the next morning! I(Wendy) went all through grammar school(Hibbard and Von UGC) with Louie. He was always the life of the party. Before covid started we were both able to speak with Louie on the phone and as always we laughed over old "albany park" memories. May his name be for a blessing.
