    How can someone take another’s life for absolutely NO FREAKING REASON. Louis was such a GREAT human being, who loved his family, who worked to provide for his family. I mean he had grandbabies, that he loved so much, and now he doesn’t get to watch them grow up. I pray from the bottom of my heart that they find the heartless person who done this and pray JUSTICE is served. May you rest well with the Heavenly Angels Louis, for you were such a good and loving soul, who cared about people, who you’ve helped along your journey here. You may be gone, but you will NEVER BE FORGOTTEN.
