    Shocked and wordless that such a vibrant light should be extinguished far too early. Was a great guy and to talk to gave a meaning to life. Will be sorely missed by his family and all who knew him. Regards John W.S.

    Upset, shocked and terribly sad to realise never again will we enjoy Lou's company, his wisdom and his humour. My sincere condolences to his family at this time. Gone but never forgotten. RIP Lou. Marian.

    How privileged Margaret and I were to have enjoyed a day with Lou along with Roger and Pauline when Vernon and Irene were so kind hosting this gracious gentleman on his visit to the Blue Mountains. His passing is a great shock. Lou ended his days with a flourish travelling and meeting friends and family after "the love of my life" passed away. Our sincerest condolences to Brenda, the family and friends of of this dear man.
    Richard and Margaret.

    This certainly does, Des.

    A truly sad day to read of the loss of this sites' wonderful character, Lou. Will miss his postings as I'm sure everyone here will. Sincere condolences to his family.

    I hope that Brenda wont mind me posting this!
    Lou will have his Funeral on Thursday the 4th June 2015 at 3PM.

    I am looking at trying hard to go and attend the Funeral,however I have told Brenda that it may not be possible,and of course she said that it would be understood!

    Brenda has also said that if I did make it,i would be picked up at the Airport ,given Accomodation and taken back after!
    This is so very kind of her and the Family.and may I thank in advance the kind offer in case I can make it!

    There are a few things to take into account though!

    If there are any that wish to send a Card please direct them to/

    I first met Lou in April this year when our Cruise ship was in Dunedin, my wife and I met Lou in the Octagon and we spent the whole day being shown around the town and some of the surrounding countryside. We met again just a couple of weeks ago in Auckland and we entertained him, finishing up at my house and chin wagged for a few hours before I took him home to his daughter's place ( Brenda ) He was an absolute gentleman ,a true salt of the earth. He will be sadly missed by many people. From memory I think he was 89 years of age. Regards Peter in NZ.
