RIP to my great uncle Louie, who is buried today. An epic person and storyteller, and a stalwart Dunmorean and world traveler. Nobody could spin a yarn or drive a car like Uncle Louie. One of my favorite people.

Ralph - my sincerest condolences on the passing of your brother. I remember him well. I remember telling my brother PAt not too long before he passed that it seemed like more people we know are leaving us. His words, that's because now it's our turn. We are in our 70s. Hope to see you one of these days.
