  3. Big Lou, I found some of my best memories of Dad were spent when the 3 of us would sit at Duchess, and you and Dad would talk to me about real estate. I learned a lot at those lunch meetings! You loved our family, especially Dad, and even went to Omaha to bring him home for Michelle and I. I have the utmost respect for you, and I hope you are resting at peace, and you and Dad are back at the Duchess in the sky, talking real estate! God bless you, Big Lou! My thoughts and prayers to Marsha, Brett and the rest of your family. Best, Lisa & Jimmy Nuzzo
