I'm sorry for your loss. Your Pepere looks like he was a wonderful man. These are hard times, especially with watching your loved one suffer from Alzheimer's. My Pop-o was taken by Alzheimer's also. It's not a fun disease to watch anyone endure.
The picture and obituary is a wonderful tribute to someone you obviously love very much.
God bless you and your family.

I'm very sorry for your loss, and I hope your memories of Louis will always be as bright and happy as the smile on his face in this wonderful picture. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
