  2. Annie, April and Family,
    Lou will certainly be missed and I know there is a huge hole in your life right now. I know your strong faith will help guide you through these troubled waters but it does not mean just because we our children of faith that we do not hurt and feel pain and grief. Even
    “Jesus wept”. Know that the Ricciardi’s send you their love, prayers and positive energy. Lou was one of a kind and I know he was a loving family man that cared deeply for you Anne, April and his grand and great grand kids. I picture him up above pruning the roses, fertilizing the lawn and trimming the trees, then taking a photo of his wonderful work. God Bless and take care, we love you Annie!

    My thoughts and prayers are with you Annie during this sad time. Your wonderful memories will get you thru. I am so happy I got to see Lou one more time several years ago and to meet you. He will always have a special place in my heart.

  5. Grandma,
    Papa Louie will always leave such a great impression on me. In comparison to the long colorful life he lived his pain was short. Which, all I can ask for, is his peace. Keep the good memories in your heart, as I will in mine. We can always share and keep him alive. I love you so much, we are in this together!
