Diane, Rosanne, and Mark,

My condolences on the passing of your dad, Uncle Lou. I know you will take comfort in that he and your mom are together again. l'll always remember the Wednesday evening visits at MomMom and PopPop's and the holiday get togethers and picnics with the entire Wagner family and when Uncle Carl came to visit. Even though we don't see each other (I now live in Savannah, Georgia) I cherish my childhood memories of our visits and family events which your Dad and Mom were an important part of. I trust your families are well.

Your Cousin Richard

Diane, Roseanne, & Mark,
Your dad was our next door neighbor for 41 yrs. He really missed his Marion. Lou would do his crossword puzzles, while Marion would listen to her Phillies on the front porch. We had some great times.
Family was always important. Our thoughts & prayers are with all of you.

Louie, It was a long time ago when I started at Mack and you were collecting for the credit union. It was a great pleasure working and knowing you. May God keep you and the Family in His precious hands.
