I am so sorry to learn that your dad passed away Sept. 30.
We have lost a portion of our past. But people like Lou Romano are the reason our middle level education profession thrives today -- and can look forward to a promising future." Dr. Romano was part of the golden age of middle schools. His dedication to advocating for middle level youth and those who serve them is appreciated and admired. He touched many hearts and left a glow to keep us warm. Another chapter of history closes as the middle level education world has lost a great friend and pioneer.
Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
It will be the little things that you will remember, the quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter. And although it may seem hard right now, it will be the memories of these small things that help to push away the pain and bring the smiles back again.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your good memories bring you comfort. We cherish the many years of memories. Our lives are richer having known Lou.
MAMSE and NMSA
My dear Pam, we hope you take comfort from the fact that you did all you could do for your wonderful dad, you were always there to help and support him ... to the end. Truly, you were the light in his life and he loved you beyond measure. For those of us whose lives were touched by Lou ... there's a void, but warm,happy and loving memories of a man, a professor, who loved life and showed us all how to live. He has passed that gift to you Pam.
RIP Uncle Lou, I will always remember your smile and enthusiasm for life. You and my Papa, your brother Tony, were larger than life and an inspiration to me that no matter who you were or where you came from, with hard work anything is possible. Your generation truly was the greatest. I am thankful that I had such positive role models in my life when I was growing up.
Jill and Kim and Family, We are sorry for the loss of your father/grandfather. We had the pleasure of meeting him at the wedding. We remember how much he enjoyed the kids and that he gave each of them 2 signed copies of his Gertie book. One for our kids to keep and one to give to their school. We hope that you find strength in your wonderful family and comfort in the memories of the time you had with Grandpa Louie. When we visited with him during that wedding weekend it was very clear how much he loved and was proud of you.
Pam, so sorry for your loss. You were a great daughter to your Daddy. You did so much to make his last years easier for him. It was easy to see how fond you were of one another. I will always remember your Dad on the dance floor and his great sense of adventure. Remembering you in prayer.
