    Oh, I’m so sorry to learn that Louie has passed. I’m a sitter for Home Helpers, and I sat with him when he was in the hospital on 3rd floor, and a couple of nights when he was moved to 2nd floor. I met you Marie one evening when you and your son came to visit with him. I could tell that ALL of you loved and cared for him so much. I enjoyed sitting with him and talking to him. I pray God will comfort all of you.
