    Robert and Jeanne,

    I and Kymme and the girls are sorry for your loss of your dad. I am writing this with the fondest of memories of Uncle Lou.

    The christmas eves as a child and the goodies at the table and as I became a young man and became involved in sports, your dad was a part of this in my life. He took me to my first Red Sox game. I remember wearing a tie and him having his cigar at the game.

    It has been awhile since I had seen your dad, I will miss him.

    Love Bobby and Kymme Wood
