    Our sympathy to the Walz families on the passing of your brother Louis.
    Louis was in our community of Marengo in our younger years. We have a lot of great memories, as is it in many small towns. He was my bus driver for years and always had a story to tell.
    Dan and Louis played on the Marengo Merchant hockey team together. Many a good times with this.
    And of course he was our local hotel owner. A great place to go on weekends especially to visit with friends.
    God Bless. Lori and Dan Boisvert.

    Friendship and family are two of the greatest qualities anyone can offer. Louis was a master of these qualities. We had the honor to call Louis both a friend and family member. Helping us out as new business owners, his commitment and advise has never been forgotten. We will miss you dear friend, but we will never forget you. Sympathy and prayers to the family.
