Lou was a really sweet, smart & loving man. He brought so much peace and stability to my Aunt Jeanne and my cousins, it was like they were all meant to be together. Like strawberries and cream, or eggs and bacon or peas and carrots! As sad as we all are to lose Lou, it is comforting to know that peas and carrots are together again in heaven. He wasn't quite the same without her and they are now at Peace again. Love, Denise and Bill

I am so sorry to hear of Lou's passing. I worked with Lou for many years at Kluwer Academic Publishers in Norwell. He was funny, smart and patient. My thoughts and prayers to his family.
