It is with great sadness that we have lost the last of that generation of Codegas. I am very happy to have visited with Uncle Louis and Aunt Ann last year and gotten caught up with them after many years. I have many wonderful memories from my childhood. My heartfelt condolences for Aunt Ann and all of my cousins. May Uncle Louis join his brothers and sisters resting in peace.
