Dan - My hat off to you regarding your wife.  As for Lou, although I
only met him once, he seemed to be quite a guy.  He used to voice the
liners used at WJUL (91.5, Lowell) for the ULowell Chiefs Hockey
broadcasts.  He did it purely as a favor and always gave them his
all.  Some of the chatter on the head=end of the reels with Lou
chatting or prepping the copy were hysterical.  He seemed to have a
great sense of humor.  THAT can't hurt during times of struggle,
