May you find comfort in knowing that Louis is safe in the memory of Jehovah God, who will remember every detail about him and bring him back again. John 5:28,29 "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out"

We are very sorry to hear of Louis passing. He was a good person (what you saw was what you got). We have many fond memories of him at church and in Sunday School. It was good seeing him back at church a short time ago. May our Lord console his loved ones and give them peace during this time of sadness. Much Love to All, Debra & Derrill
