Good bye my dear friend
Louis and I were classmates, teammates and best of friends in high school at St. Johns. Each school day, I would pick him up at his house and we would ride to school each morning. We would talk about the many serious things all 16-18 yrs. talk about.
I will never forget, the summer before our senior year, Louis,Jim Adger and I took a weeks trip to the Panhandle of Florida. None of the three of us

Oh my goodness, how shocked I was to see Louis in the newspaper this weekend. He was the managing partner at E&Y when I was a brand new auditor. I was there 8 years. Louis' intelligence, character, and humor made working there quite special. He was proper and polite, but had a great sense of humor. He always had a secret smile behind the stern face. I remember he used to give the men grief when they wore any shirt

I knew, respected and loved Louis through many Years at Temple Inland and as a co-Board Member at Forestar. He was a humble, hard working man that would always speak his mind--and almost always he was right!! My thoughts and prayers are with the family. He will be missed by many and especially me.

Mary Ware, Margaret, and Jennie - I have known Louis for more than 60 years now, since elementary school days. Louis and I both grew up in Shreveport, living only about 3 blocks apart. We both lived near Byrd High School, but both attended St. Johns High School instead. After high school graduation, about half a dozen of our classmates all left Shreveport with Louis and me to attend La Tech in Ruston.
Louis and I started our freshman college

Please accept my heartfelt prayers at the passing of Louis. He and I served togeteher on the Board of Directors of Forestar for the last few years.I always looked forward to seeing Louis and catching up with him. It was a joy to hear about Louis's trips to the California wine country or interesting spots around the globe. He was a thoughtful and kind soul who was a true gentleman. It was honor to have known him and I send my love and prayers for his family and friends who, I know, will miss him greatly.
