    Peg and my condolences to you, Doreen and daughters. I recall the times I had with Lou or Muscles, as a classmate and roommate in University and in the Navy. He was the smartest in our mining class and loved to play hockey. Though small, he was not scared of anyone.
    Rest in Peace my old friend.
