  • Lou, As I was checking the Einan’s obituaries this morning, I was saddened to see that your wife had passed away. During our time working together at 100N, I never had a chance to meet her, but know that she must be a great loss to you. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time

  • Had the pleasure of meeting this fine lady with my “old roomie” from Kings Point, while visiting Seattle many years ago. Deanie was a delight, and I knew that Lou had hit the jackpot. I know she is in a better place, and I look forward to meeting her and Lou sometime in the future. God Bless.
