Fannie and family I am sorry for your Loss. I went to Lanphier with Louis. I always enjoyed him and his humor. Although it has been years I never forget him. My blessing to you.
Fannie, I am sorry for your loss, I am praying for you and your family. Take care.
My most heartfelt to Fannie and the entire Williams Family. Imbedded in my memory of you Lou, was dude you were just too cool. The way you dressed, with the silk shirts, trench coat with fur collar. The cool hats and pinky ring, and the smooth shoes. The easy way you spoke with unhurried speech. Your the first cat I ever saw eat corn bread with a fork.... like u said too cool. You made an impression on me as a young boy, you and my dad working together in the early years coming from the south,sharing holidays with my family for years, which as far as we're concerned you were family. Blessing upon you "Ole Cool Lou"
