It's with a very heavy heart that I let our readers know Professor Lou Sirico, the co-editor of the Legal Skills Prof Blog, passed away at 8:13 a.m. this morning, Wednesday, December 26, 2018. Lou had recently been diagnosed with cancer. To say that I'm devastated by the news doesn't adequately describe the emotions running through my mind right now. More than a great friend, colleague and mentor, Lou was a guiding presence in my life, helping me through some very difficult times including the death of my mother and my own battle with cancer out of which this blog was born. Lou was cut from a different cloth than others. Indeed, I can't think of anyone else who can come close to filling the void left by him.
I'll write and post here a more formal tribute to Lou in the days ahead after I've had time to collect my thoughts and find the right words to describe the kind of person Lou was to those who knew him. In the meantime, our thoughts go out to his family and the many people who loved and cared about him.
Rest in peace sweet man. We will not see the likes of you again.
