    Dear Angela, Erica, Louis, your wife and children along with Lou’s extended family, Thank you for sharing your Dad, brother, grandfather, uncle, friend with all of our family, sending you our deepest sympathy and prayers
    Lou was a true friend to my brother Kevin, (R.I.P.) they cheered for the Patriots, Boston sports teams and followed sports with passion, loved music, movies, cooking, restaurants, sub shops, pizza shops, food was love, family everything, they shared countless laughs and were gifted with true friendship and passed it onto me and my family after my brother died. It is a comfort to know they are together with loved ones in heaven now. Truly heaven is a better heaven now. My family loved Lou, Wwould prepare for holidays baking and enjoying holiday music, sharing memories of every tradition shared in years gone by, we loved to eat everything we baked too. Seasonally and for special occasions Lou would love to visit his wife’s grave and decorate his wife’s gravesite, now they are joined at the graveside, as they were on earth and are in heaven, side by side…truly, he is at peace, full of happiness by his bride again. The empty seat is at the table, Lou won’t be here to help bake and share in memories held dear so we are so sad to have to let him go but until we meet again our family will try our best to emulate his warm, kind, sensitive, smart, humorous, engaging, game for anything spirit of goodness. R.I.P. Lou & love ox our dearest Friend
    With Sympathy, Theresa (Terri), Joe, Katrina, Timothy Heisler
