Helping Out Lou

Lou has been our neighbor and friend for nearly ten years.  He's been a presence on Ford Street for even longer and embodies what this street is all about; friendly, welcoming and a little wild and crazy.

Unfortunately, a few months ago, Lou found out that he's suffering from Lymphoma amongst other medical issues.  We've watched our friend go from hearty and hail to frequent hospitalizations due to sickness.

As we all know, none of that is cheap.  So, we're hoping that we can pull together some funds to help Lou out.  In situations like this it's natural to want to help, but feel stymied as to how...well, here's your how.  Let's help defer the cost of being ill for a dear friend, a wonderful neighbor, an awesome contractor, and an all around terrific person.
