Lou, I was one of Erin’s close friend and I remember you always making us Kids giggle. You brought so much delight and is always look forward to your funny shenanigans when you’d arrive home. Your death was the first death I truly experienced as a child and I didn’t want to let go of you or the memories. I still think about you often! Blessings to your family!
