"A Reflective Time in Life: 

 Louis Seyler"

       films by Sarah Sleem

“At some point in courtship, she said to me, ‘Lou, I think I’m falling in love with you.’ And I said, ‘Oh, hell. Don’t tell me that! You’ve got to be kidding. You know better than that! Don’t do that to me.’ Wow. She was taken aback. She didn’t know what to think.  And I said, ‘If you start grow toward loving me, that’s OK.  But don’t fall in love me!"
