"Family; Lou and I grew up together in the West End area of Butler. We played together and went to school together. I remember his Mom and Dad and how nice they were. I would go to his house and just walk in the front door. Lou and I graduated from Butler Class of 1960. I remember him fondly and extend my deepest sympathy to you. Thalia Eberle Payne"
