I just found out Wasili had died.Wasili was my best friend in Thomas Jefferson high school in Brooklyn. I wore outmany pairs of sneakers playing handball with Wasili. I never got use to calling him Lou. For someone with no background in sailing, I was amazed when he bought his first sailboat which he invited me on. I remember Wasili putting in kitchen cabinets by himself. Wasili was a very bright and kind person. I will always remember him fondly. Rest in peace my friend. Raymond Polak

Dear Anna, Greg, Marie, Laura and Kristin,

Words seem inadequate to express the sorrow we feel for you. The magnitude of the grief you are suffering is simply unimaginable.

Lou was such a sweet man and a wonderful neighbor. We will always remember being guests on your sailboat in Darien. Captain Lou and his first mate were a great team, navigating the Darien waters and making their guests feel comfortable and welcomed.

Many years have passed since we last saw Lou. We thank you for sharing his life in such an informative, beautiful, and respectful eulogy.

We hope and pray that you can gain strength from your family to endure this very painful time in your life. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.

May God bless you all, now and always.

With deepest and heartfelt sympathy,

Kevin and Linda Malloy
