    We went to infantry officer school and airborne together. We served together in the 1st infantry. You and Terry were my son Gabriels god parents and we’re there for his baptism by father Hightower. I will never forget you and Ann singing karaoke together. You were a tough guy with a gentle heart. Will miss you till I die. Like a brother to me. We think if you often.

  2. Louie, you was my first love that I trusted with my whole being..we grew up together in many ways that even our divorce couldn’t wipe away the time. Remember that I am and always will be proud to have loved you and had a family with you. My heart aches everyday and cries to talk to you as my friend and papa of our babies. Please know that nobody was ever able to take your spot even though they tried. Good bye my soldier boy,till we meet again, make me proud of you in heaven as you did here in my life..I love you Louie, till death do us part…Terri

  3. We are friends of his brother Frank. We want to let you know we are here for you and you are in our thoughts and prayers. Please tell your family we are thinking of them in this very difficult time.

    Louie was a son, a brother, a husband, a father, a grandfather, a brother-in-law, and an uncle. When my kids were little, he was also Santa Claus. Louie will be missed for the boy and the man that he was and for the man that he had yet to become. I know that he is with his Dad, Mr. T., a truly special man. Though I can’t personally be there to offer my support and comfort to my sister Terri, my niece Amy, my nephew Louie, and Mrs. T. who is a woman I have always loved, admired and respected, please know that my heart and my spirit are with you all. My love and comfort go to Frankie, Millie, Mary Ann, Tina, Jeannie, Elijah, Daijah, and Korina . My sympathy to Louie’s family and friends. Louie – always my brother-in-law .. I love you.. God’s speed!
