Thanks, Ron.

When you get a moment, you might want to post some stories about Louie. Did he have a nickname? Was Louie in the AsturianUS documentary?

Art, yes, he was in the documentary. I had a very good visit with him last week. He is the last of the original family. Louis is also in the photo album with Suronda and his two cousins.
