My husband Bob was on the Abbot with Lou. When we attended the Navy reunion in Portland, Maine
we met Joyce. The reunion ended on Sunday but both Bob and I and Lou and Joyce stayed over another day. Lou and Joyce took us to eat at a lobster shack. Joyce said they found it on their way into town for reunion and had been there more than once since they got to reunion. We had a fun evening together eating lobster and chatting. My thoughts and prayers are with Lou and his family.
