Louie really has been more than a great friend. He is like a brother to me. His family has always made me feel welcome, whether it was his birth family or his marriage family.
We have worked countless hours together, through good and bad. We have laughed a lot and have always had a good time and we continue to do so, especially with our work for Global Traveler. I could go on and on, but sometimes simplicity is better.
Happy birthday Louie. I hope it is a great one. You're a great friend and deserve the best.
