Letter — Lucky to have known Lou
May 9, 2003
If you live in Lake Tahoe, you are lucky. If you have met a person who inspires you to be a better person, you are lucky. If you knew Lou Magnotti, you were really lucky.
As everyone who knew him knows, Lou felt so lucky to be in Lake Tahoe that he had to share his good fortune. He helped anyone he knew needing help. He wasn’t concerned with personal recognition. He helped quietly, simply, profoundly. He was the embodiment of brotherly love.
Why our luck went bad, and what we lost with Lou, we’ll never know. We can only try to remember and live his selfless goodness. May Marilyn, and all of us, find the strength and understanding to deal with this loss. Bless you, Lou.
Lucky to have known him.
