Dear Louis family, I’m so very sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of being Don’s classmate for 11 years at St. Mary’s and then Ithaca. Sadly, I fell out of touch but always thought fondly of Don. I came to Deerfield Beach this week with thoughts of exploring to meet again but it was too little too late. God bless you as you deal with your loss while celebrating his life and memory,
