Dad, after detailing a bad experience, with your positive attitude shining through you always told me, "Nothing is so bad that it can't worse". It's not working for me this time, Dad.

There's a lot you've taught me and positivity was one of the greatest gifts. It carries me through life and helps me survive life's bumps and bruises.

Your other legacy is to get humor from what you can. Laughter, funny stories and corny "punnies" were your gift to us. I love you, dad and will remember these lessons and your boisterous guffaws and coconut songs, etc. forever. Tell your jokes in heaven but be careful not to get kicked out! 😉

My fond memories of Uncle Louie will always be his unique gift of gab. His conversations were never boring, and he loved to debate ANY topic. He had quite a sense of humor and loved telling a joke, as I'm sure you all know. This is how I will always remember him, and I will miss this. May you rest in peace Uncle Louie. Love, Dorothy

To all the Scheschy family, please accept our sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. May the Lord comfort you during this difficult time. God bless and much love to you all!

I still remember the first thing you said to me..."Mama Mia"...Thank you for always making me feel special and for making me laugh. I will always remember our trip to Europe and you losing all your important documents...that were attached to you by a chain...every time we stopped! 😃

To my dear Uncle Louis,

"Lord fill my mouth with worthwhile stuff, and nudge me when I've had enough"

There isn't enough room here to tell all the great stories of my childhood experiences being a part of Uncle Louis's family. As a youngster sometimes living in the Scheschy household, I was mostly in fear of my "Loud" and powerful-disciplinarian Uncle Louis.
I learned a lot in his home; like what a "Spigot" is. And how to respect others. I learned that everyone must carry their share of the load and so much more. I will miss the laugh that can be identified in any crowd, although Terry and Mike both have the gene!
How about being the only one to represent my family at my vow-renewal of 34 years of wedded bliss to a cute red-head from Great Falls (Jill) and manage to steal a dance with her before leaving. Thank you so much for the memories...
My friend tells me the past is good for two things: Fond memories, and lessons learned. Uncle Louis, you gave them both to me. Have fun, laugh out loud! and I will see you again!

God bless and keep Uncle Louis's family ALWAYS!
Love - Jimbo
