Dear Deforge Family
I have had the honour to meet, and learn with Louis as a Cambrian Nursing Student. I have learned so much from him, his courage, smile and kindness are contageous. He was a great student, friends to many in his graduating class and a role model for future nursing students. I wish to send you, family and friends, my sincere sympathies.

I am deeply saddened today to learn of Louis' passing. He and I were classmates in nursing school. It was an honour to learn shoulder to shoulder with him and graduate as a Registered Nurses. He always made his classmates smile and his hard work and effort inspired us all!! Prayers to the family during this difficult time.
