    Your parents were both so special to us. I sat by them at 7:30 Mass as long as they were able to go. And, always enjoyed bringing their birthday cards to them. We had Mr. Leo's 91st birthday card ready to go over there on Saturday. Loved seeing him dance with Angela and Brandi, not too long ago. He always loved and appreciated company. We miss Mrs. Lou, and we will miss Mr. Leo.
