I don't believe that I have met Mr. Jenz, but I know his son and his granddaughters. Please accept my deepest condolences to all of your family during these most sorrowful, difficult days.

Jake had told me that Louie was good with an insult or a comeback comment without making people upset with him. Upon meeting him for the first time, with sort of a smirking grin, he said something like "does your mother know you dress like that in public?" We all laughed and I have always considered him my brother from the first and I always will. My condolences to family and friends.

Oh how I loved seeing Uncle Louie, my godparent, when he would come to Rapid City for a visit. You always knew he would greet you with a mischievous smile, hug, and a joke or two! Prayers to all the family and friends who knew him and loved him.

Uncle Louie to me - he was my godparent. He ever so kind to me for the times I got to be around him. He made me feel special for being his god-daughter and to this day, he has a special place in my heart. I knew him as a kind, generous, and fun-loving man who always had a smile. May he rest in peace and I hope that Tammy and Bryan know how much he meant to me.
