"Louis-you made me smile. You were kind, and you were so interested in----everything! We talked about intellectual ideas far above your grade level. You just knew stuff and were curious! You introduced me to the idea that different teas brew at different had a tea set I think your dad got you overseas. I never looked at tea the same after that. I remember you copied your (moving)image in a video and duplicated that image---in 2011, learning computer video editing software on your own ( Sony?) ! I always hoped your future was bright and your intellect and heart would prevail over challenges. You were funny and a goofball, and you made others happy while you were here. Thanks for being in my life as an art teacher here at KHMS. I have been talking to others, and we are sad that you are gone, and we have a lot of fond memories to save in our hearts. As Ram Dass said, "I would like my life to be a statement of love and compassion---and where it isn't, that's where my work lies". You did that, Louie! I will have some tea at around 210 degrees Fahrenheit in your honor! -Suzanne Farr, Kaneland Harter Middle School"
