My deepest heartfelt condolences to all the family. I thoroughly enjoyed and looked forward to his full-of-life morning visits to Baba-A-Louis. Such a buoyant, kind, witty, thoughtful man; conversation with Gus was always a joy.

Mrs. Louras, Nico, Val, Chris,

My deepest sympathies for the passing of Mr. Louras. He was a wonderful man. I will always have fond memories of him. I particularly remember his evening walks with Pete Louras as they meandering down Elm Street hill deep in conversation. He will be missed by everyone he touched. God bless him and all of you.
