Louis O. Lawrence, 1995 - 2009


Hello, thanks for coming.

I built this site for my nephew, Louis, who is one of the best people I have ever met.

There are links at the top of this page to the rest of the site, including our blog, and more information about Louis and his illness.

To make a long story short, Louis had a brain tumor, which, because of its location, aggressiveness, and consistency, could not be removed.  Louis succumbed to his illness on May 26, 2009.  He was 13.

If you’d like to make a donation to help our family with the burden of seven years of full-time medical care and costs of the final arrangements, we’d be grateful.

When I first published this site, in February of this year, Louis’s medical team predicted that he would have 2 or 3 months of reasonable health before he started to lose functionality.  We decided to spend those 2 months doing as many things that Louis wanted to do as possible.  Because of the kind donations from people all over the world, we’ve been able to take Louis to Hawaii, Disneyland, Austin, and even the Utz Potato Chip factory in Hanover, PA.

Please visit our blog and photo pages, and feel free to share this site with others.  Louis was a wonderful, amazing person, so take a minute and have a look at our pictures and stories so you can get to know him.

As John Steinbeck said; there may be other fish in the sea, but the sea is lonely without this fish.
