I am so sorry to hear of Lou's passing. Our families have always been close, especially when we lived in Tazewell, and you all were such a part of the weave of my life. Lou will always be remembered as a gentle bear of a man who touched so many generations of kids at THS. And you, my sister of the heart, please know that you will always be dear and loved, and may you have every solace, to come through this difficult time. With love, Lynda
