Remembering Fr. Aufiero

Dear Editor: I was so sad to learn that Father Lou Aufiero had passed away in May of 2015. He has been a good friend, mentor and spiritual advisor since I first met him as an orthopaedic surgery resident when I was in residency training at Mary Immaculate Hospital in Jamaica, back in 2004.

He baptized my only child, Andrew. My family would take him to The Metropolitan Museum of Art every Christmas season to see the lovely Christmas tree and the Nativity scene there. He actually knew that my wife was two weeks pregnant before we even told him or anyone else one day when we took him there in late December 2009.

He will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him and we all look forward to one day meeting again in Heaven.

We love you and miss you Father Lou. God Bless. Rest in peace.
