Martha, God bless you and the family. I'll never forget the Little League days with Steve and our cheer of Shake Shake Shake. Lou got a kick out of the kid's responding. He was a good man and friend. My best to all

The few times I had the pleasure of Lou’s company was always full of joy and he was a true gentleman. His spirit and smile will definitely be missed.

Massive condolences from our family to yours ! We met Lou and Martha a few times over past years and we remember with kindness and love the good times that we spent together when they visited Steve and Lisa in Fairview Texas. Of course there was always great food, lots of laughter and usually some really good drinks involved. And it goes without saying, even though I will anyway, that my favorites were always the sausages and jerky and everyone loved Martha's cookies. We felt like part of the family which is HUGE !
I'm just remembering a golf outing that Steve, Lou and I did years ago. I know we had a great time that day.
We were blessed to have spent the time that we did with Lou.
With a sa
...d heart I say god speed my friend. I know we will meet again.
Love to all of you,
Don, Glenda, Matthew and Jessica Goodrich

When I was little I remember seeing Buddy at Grandma Mary’s house. He was genuinely friendly and interested in us kids. He always wore a smile on his face. Rest In Peace! Karla Sherman
