Last year Lewis and Barbara joined Suzanne and me in Mexico. During the week we were there Lewis and I wanted to charter a boat to take us deep sea fishing.We started out just catching some Mahi Mahi that were decent size. Lewis was having a great time, especially when it was his turn in the fighting chair. With 30 minutes left of the 4 hour charter, we hooked a Blue Marlin Salefish, and buddy the fight was on. Lewis gave that Marlin all he could in the fighting chair and just had a grand time watching that fish walk across the water. Also the first Marlin I have ever fought. It was just such a rush to see one up close and then release it back to the blue waters. I’ll certainly miss Lewis each time I go back salt water fishing and seeing Lewis’s grin on his face. RIP Lewis and keep catching the big ones...

No one grilled lamb better than Louis. As many times as I stood beside him at the grill taking copious notes of every detail of his preparation, he would just chuckle and say, “Yea, you be sure and let me know if yours comes out as good.” My results with lamb have never come close to his, and I doubt they ever will. I’ll cherish those notes and the sweet memories of visits to see him and Barb and our time spent playing in their garden and around his grill. Heaven is in for some great feasts ahead. We’re gonna miss you, Louis.

Louis was a great friend and awesome coworker. Our relationship began in the early 2000's and lasted until now. Our mutual love for golf and UNC basketball will stay with me forever. Every March we reignited our love of NCAA basketball with a standard $20.00 wager on our brackets. It seemed I was always mailing him those crisp $20 dollar bills! What a great man he was! I will miss him so much, especially every March. My best to Barbara and his family! My heart goes out to all of you!! Mark Upchurch
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Dearest Nancy and Barb, Though your hearts may be heavy, may they also be comforted by knowing how much love was shared by each of you with Louis. May all the beautiful memories bring you both peace and comfort in the days ahead. With care and compassion, Amy Martinez (Nancy’s best friend)
