Hi everyone - i wanted to let you know that my dad, Lou Heitzler: aka Pawlou or lil joe, passed away on May 15, 2013 after a short illness. He was hospitalized for pneumonia and never made it back home. He was living with me, Becky Garling, in Springfield, Missouri at the time of his death. Thank you all for providing many years of friendship, and community to my dad. God Bless, Becky
I am so very sad to hear this. Got to know Lou way back while "crunching" for a cancer cure", we all had lots of fun during some friendly competition.
Lou sent us cds and even talked me through a fix for a computer problem one time. Between him and my hubby, we got it fixed. We have traded emails for years. We will sure miss him. Thanks for letting everyone know Becky.
Please give our sincere condolences to all of his family.

Lou's commentary is one of the major reasons I started participating in this forum 9 years ago. He was friendly, helpful, caring, and seemed to love to joke around with the other regulars. His banter helped make this forum so much more human instead of just words on a screen. His personality came through strong in his posts. He always seemed like such a good guy. I'll miss him. He will be remembered here. My condolences to you and your family.
We will miss him. I'm sure that I will be looking for his comments for a long time. He will live forever in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.
