I love you grandma. Mitchell, Madison and I all wish we could have had more time with grandpa, but the LORD works in mysterious ways. We all loved grandpa very much, and we all miss him very much. Your loving grandson.

I worked with Lou for many years at Stearn-Rogers, and we spent many good times at Steamboat where he taught all my kids how to ski. He was one of a kind at work and on the slopes. A fine man and a gentleman in every way, he will be missed.

Dear Char, We are so sorry to hear about Lou. We remember the fun times we shared together before moving away: especially the 50"s party you held in honor of his 60th birthday; and the times of fellowship we shared together. But we rejoice that he knew Jesus and is standing before him with worship and praise for his Savior!
We are keeping you in our prayers that the Lord will give you strength and comfort in the coming days and months. He promises to "heal the broken hearted." The Lord bless you. John and Yvonne Wagner

Dearest Char,
We are so sorry, yet rejoice that he is now in peace in heaven. I can't help remembering the fun we had together in Mexico.

I worked with Lou at Coorstek for years and never met a better person. I never seen him without a smile on his face and something good to say. We have truly lost a great person but heaven is gaining one.
