I will miss my thoughtful neighbor Lou so very much! I enjoyed our talks in the driveway about life, politics, and the how you knew how to repair anything. I was blessed the day you and Jo moved next door and am ever grateful for how you looked out for me and my home. Always grateful for your service and sacrifice as an Army Ranger in Viet Nam. Sending prayers to the entire Kerecz family. Sandy Jackson
