  1. Rest in peace, louis. May your soul rest in peace. May your soul and the souls of all the dearly departed rest in peace. Amen. I have known Louis for 50 years since I worked at the Auto store in Rushville. I am not afraid to say a nicer person would be hard to come by. My condolences to his family. May he look down on you.
