  1. Some want awards,fame riches,popularity….I just want to hear “Well done my good and faithful servant” when I see my Saviour. That is literally all that matters at this point. This broken world is still chasing perishables…let us chase the kingdom with what we have.🌍 👂 😇

    This is a text he sent me a few weeks before his transition…

    Growing up you were the only male figure growing up in my life. You You sparked my interest in the medical field. We spent nearly every holiday together. We mourned over Aunt Edna when she got sick. Your passing was nothing I ever expected. I’ll never forget your garden you tended to, you and Aunt Edna together and your devotion to your spirituality. Your love of all things Nature.

    I love you and I’m sorry I could be there by your side.

    You told me I was a good woman. Well, You were a good man and you light shines on forever ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  2. I will miss your daily morning texts which always put a smile on my face. I’ll miss our talks and all our inside jokes. Most of all I’ll miss you my friend💔

  3. Uncle Louis was always a joy to a be around. I will cherish our conversations, time spent together and all of wisdom he shared. I will never forget you and I know you will be on my mind. I wish for you peace and a heaven full of your favorite songs. <3

  4. Louis attended our church faithfully. We are so sad at his passing. We are happy to know that he was a born again christian and is with the Lord. Our church will be donating Bibles in memory of Louis to the Gideons International. Our sympathy and prayers are extended to his family.

  5. Louis

  6. candleRIP my friend. You were a kind and gentle man, who always treated his patients as if g thy bey they were your own family. I will miss our daily morning texts. I will miss you!

  7. I will forever treasure you’re presence in the front row at LIREIA.
    You are truly the most Christian person I know. You didn’t preach about God you lived it. May you be at peace.

  8. You were an amazing person and a dear friend not just to me but to the whole Santorelli family for 30 + years and you will be greatly missed. My morning coffee will not be the same without your daily texts. So glad we were united again but sad to lose you all over.. God has a special place for you, his loyal servant ,in his house . Til we meet again <3

  9. candleI spoke with Louis a few weeks ago and I could tell that he was in peace with the world. He was always so kind to me and sent me heartwarming messages daily. My sister took care of his wife before she passed as well. It was always so nice to speak with Louis and have a respectful dialogue with him. I am a Muslim and he was a Christian but he never judged me for who I am. May the Lord have mercy on him.
    From God we Come and Him we shall return.

  10. candleLouis, your presence was always a bright spot in my day. Your encouragement and friendship were a true blessing to me. I looked forward to my daily messages from you. May your light live on in those whose hearts you have touched. Rest in the peace and love of the Father’s arms. We will meet again.

  11. candleMy sweet cousin Louis. So much like my mom Bianca who he visited with often. Always saw the best in people. I will miss your kind soul.

  12. Louis was the kindest person you could ever meet. He was an amazing mentor to all of us during our time at St. Catherine’s. He always went the extra mile to help you with a positive attitude and smile on his face. RIP Louis, you will be missed. – Shannon, Alex, Dara & Melissa.

  13. My friend, my cousin,
    I’m surrounded by sadness over the loss of you. I’m comforted by memories of our conversations, and adventures. What a kind, sweet, giving man you are.
    I love you.
    I’ll see you in heaven,
    Linda

  14. candleLouis was always the kindest person. He loved his job and working with students. Always teaching and encouraging us. He was a wonderful mentor and friend. I will truly miss our conversations and all the guidance you have given me. You will be very missed.

  15. candleSo sorry I never met Louis as I’ve learnt today, Sept. 25th, 2020 from my Cousin Richard M. that Louis passed away and previously resided in North Central Florida. May God Bless his soul, and condolences to his family as he passed at far to young of an age from this horrible pandemic that has claimed the lives of so many. R.I.P. Louis,.. you will be missed by so many of us.

  16. Such a Gentle soul. Sometimes the only kind face you could find. Louis was great comfort to a nervous Radiology student whose nerves got the best of her and needed someone to speak to her as if she belonged there like everyone else did. Thank you for helping me through rough days at clinical. Thank you for the Pep talks. Hopefully the people around you learned something from you.

  17. I have many fond memories of brother Louis and now he’s waiting on heaven’s. Shore line to welcome all who have placed their trust in Jesus home.Again its such a privilege to have known and loved Brother Louis.

  18. Louis was such a kind and gentle person. He made a difference at St. Catherine’s over the years, always treating both colleagues and patients in a humane and caring manner. God Bless him and his family.

  19. Louis was always there to help anybody who had need if he could spare the time.
    With all the heavy load he had with his job, his house and his ailing wife whom he visited daily, I was amazed how he kept time for others with what limited time he had and scheduled time to fellowship with others whom he knew from the churches he attended.
    He always had a good attitude and I never remember him speaking against someone in a negative fashion but would express his concerns for their spiritual condition. Like me he had a hunger for information on world conditions and the evil manifesting itself and how they aligned with prophecy. Many times he would end a conversation with me with a slight cantor of the head and a warm smile.
    He was a great friend and will be sorely missed.

  20. Louis,
    I will miss our daily texts. I am happy that I was able to make you feel a little better when you were sick. Thank you for making me feel your presence the night you Left this earth. I will treasure all the conversations we’ve had. May you Rest In Peace my gentle friend.

  21. I am thankful that I had the opportunity to work with Louis and have shared many wonderful memories together. We were so shocked and sadden to hear of his passing. His kindness and gentle way about him brought much joy to all he met and will never be forgotten. He will truly be missed. Our deepest condolences to your family.
