  1. I always got my hair cut at Louies, I enjoyed getting the latest news and listening to his gripes about things, as I am of a like mind, we agreed on many things. I will miss his conversations, and feel like I will never get my hair cut in the same enjoyable manner ever again. I send his family my deepest sympathy. Agustin
