I am just one out of many that prayed that this not be the end of the list of good things that Louis and his family and friends have done for this community. I send warmest of all affection to all who supported them. For everyone of you present there was hundreds of us in the back ground praying for positive results. I hope all the GOOD that Louis did will somehow be applied to him, in this hour of his need.
