At age 36, he was a burned out former high school teacher, unsure of what he wanted to do with the rest of his life. Then Lou was diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease. He decided then to start living again. In the 10 years since then he completed a graduate degree in education, and one in pastoral care (seminary). Lou also served as a resident chaplain at a major metropolitan area trauma center, been ordained to the ministry, fathered children #s 1,2 and 3 (2and 3 were twins), relocated to teach special education to young adults in inner city Detroit. Now, at 46 he finds that he does not have time to let PD push him into decline. He is too busy coaching tee-ball, attending cub scout meetings, playing husband (and bowling). Although he is somewhat hobbled by the infirmity, he is living his life to the fullest, and having the best time of his life, amused at the thought of turning 50 in a few short years, and grateful for the ability to sort out the important from the unimportant. Among the many activities Lou refuses to give up, is that to make frequent trips back home to Kentucky to use his season tickets to watch his beloved NCAA Champion Kentucky Wildcats basketball team.
