3 Condolences for Louis Reno, Jr.

  • Lou will be greatly missed. He always wecomed us with open arms when we came visiting. l

  • My heart goes out to Marie and the family. Lou was the best neighbor anyone could have. He looked after my mom’s place in Long Neck for many years and did so much for all of us. I have many great memories of that place, and Lou and Marie are in so many of them. He always made us laugh with all the stories he shared. I will remember him fishing and crabbing on the bay, waving to us on the shore, as he drove past in his boat. He truly loved it there, as we all did.
