Barbara I just learned of Louis passing from Larry Rosenson. He was a good friend and great boss. Like you, I will miss him. Lyman Stinson

Dear Barbara
You have lost a great man. Lou was a guiding force in my life and I will always remember him. We shared many experiences from the experiment at Harvard to us touring the Haight Ashbury district to find the hippies when we were supposed to be at a scientific meeting.

Dear Barbara and Family,
I was very sad to hear of Louie's passing. Of course it has been many, many years since I saw him, and you, Barbara and the rest of the two families. I have many fond memories of him and life at Peacock Farm Rd. One weekend Louie took a few of us camping in the Pemigewassit Wilderness, perhaps forty five years ago and the recollections of that three day adventure are as crystal clear today as then. I'm forever grateful for that. Please accept my deepest condolences. And my very best to the family.

I was sad to hear of Louis passing yesterday at DeRam House.I enjoyed every Friday giving Louis his lunch with his glass of wine. We always had great talks. He was a true gentleman who left an impact on the world we live.

I toasted him last night over a glass of wine (imported Italian of course).

I am constantly using Marcella Hazen book. Thanks for the info.

I will keep Louis,you and your family in my prayers.

Best wishes
