Not sure what to say?

I came to know Lou through the international pediatric association when he helped us organize vaccine meetings in Jordan along with the late Cairo de quad rod of the Sabin vaccine institute Lou was so kind as to receive me for a meeting in New York and from that time we became friends and colleagues while this is some time back I cannot but remember his kindness his enthusiasm and his immense knowledge Najwa Khuri Bulos professor of pediatrics and infectious disease university of Jordan ...

He was one of my favorite relatives. I look forward to being reunited in a better world.

Louis-You were a great leader in Pediatric Medicine-We will miss you.
Dr. Robert & Margarita Bigge

So privileged to have worked with him in the American Academy of Pediatrics - a true trail-blazer!

Lou was a great friend and colleague of my grandfather. He was a giant in the field of pediatric infectious diseases and a mentor to many pediatricians. He would always talk with me at meetings and ask about my family- even when he was such a leader and I was just a young pediatrician. He will be missed by many.

Lou's death saddens me in part because we've now lost another strong voice for children and the importance of science in their care. His ability to communicate amicably with everyone in this fractured world may be an even greater loss. I will miss him.

Louis was a giant in his field and in his life. He tutored many and was an example to many, many others. He was a major insoiration in my life. The world needs more men of his intellect, dedication and inspiration. Mark Rapoport, MD, MPH, FAAP
