It was hard to see him today for the last time..Oh what Memories flashed before our eyes. The service was beautiful. The Priest pointed out different things that Lou made in wood working that he did for the church. The Lectern, The Altar, and also the Large Cross on the wall with Jesus Christ on it. He said Lou made all these with the lumber from the same tree...Beautiful!!! He also helped the Boys Scouts redo all the stain windows in the church & also played a big part in the building of the social/fellowship hall.
When Airstreaming, Lou often led the Caravan down the road. Guess who led this Funeral to the cemetery? Yes it was Lou again!! The internment was at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery. We drove about 35 miles together to get there, we were met by the Military Staff and stopped at one of the pavilions for the service. The Military conducted a Full Military Salute to Lou( He was a Korean Veteran). 21 Gun Salute, Taps, and also the Flag ceremony with a presentation to Stephanie.
Afterwards we gathered at a local restaurant for some refreshments and to talk about memories. Today was hard for me because of losing a friend who had the same interests as me. I will always remember his out going personality and friendship. "Good Bye Lou" but always on my heart!! God Bless...... Amen
