    So very sad to hear about Louie’s passing. He was an amazing guy. He talked so highly of his kids and was so proud of them. Terry, you meant the world to him and you could see how much he Loved you. He always had a joke, or funny story to tell, and so friendly to everyone. It won’t be the same at the cabin without him.
    With Deeepest Sympathy, Bob and Beth Ann (Ueland) Pedersen
