"Threads of Love" Donor Memorial Quilt: Quilt 21
Louis J. Milo, Jr.
November 22, 1966- August 3, 2008
On August 3, 2008 Louis Milo Jr., my best friend, mu husband and father of my 2 children ages 8 and 11 died of a massive heart attack. He was the love of my life and their wonderful "good-time" Daddy. That day our life was forever changed.........
Louie was also a wonderful son, brother, and uncle; a dear friend and an all around great guy to all who had the privilege of knowing him. In his short life, Louie touched many lives. He had the biggest heart and was noted for his giant "Lou Milo" hugs that he gave freely with a big smile on his face. He loved to tell jokes and make people laugh. Lou had a great passion for fast cars and trucks. He loved life and lived it to the fullest.
During his life, Louie strived to achieve many high goals that he set for himself, one of which was establishing his own successful company specializing in utility excavation. He was a man who took great pride in his work and always thought of his men as his second family.
We have many wonderful memories of Louie and he will forever live in our hearts. We take great comfort in knowing that through organ donation, another family is getting a second chance for their loved one because of Lou. He was a donor of eyes, bone, and tissue. LOUIE, WE LOVE AND MISS YOU WITH ALL OUR HEATS!!!!!!!!
The 4 hearts on the quilt represent our family. The excavator and patch (taken from a shirt he wore) represent the business he worked so hard to create. The 4 leaf clovers are a reminder that he is always here with us.
