-My first memory of him - his visit to us, when he walked on his hands all around our house, to show me how strong he was. I was impressed!
-He took me to the beach and tried to teach me how to swim. I felt very safe with his hands holding me up in the water.
-He worked with me all one weekend, teaching me to walk with my feet pointing straight forward, not pigeon-toed. Perfection was important.
-I saw my mother's tears when he became a pilot in WW 2, and I began collecting 4-leaf clovers, which I sent to him to keep him safe.
-I wore a white eyelot dress, with blue-enamel pins for buttons to his wedding. One of these buttons still sits in my memory box.
-When Kathy was born, I travelled by bus to take care of Mark, so all the attention could go toward the new baby. Family was important.
-He graduated from college summa cum laude, with highest honors.
Education was important.
-Medical school was next. For we who followed, he set the bar high.
We must excel.
-When David died, Louis crept into my arms to cry. We support one-
-When his beloved wife died, he refused to believe it. Loss is so hard to accept.
-He reached his 90th birthday.
He was cherished.
-Now he is gone. But the memories and values will stay with us.
I will miss him. My Dear One, Louis.
His sister, Karen
I worked with Dr. Weisbrod in the OR and ER for many years @HFH. He was a wonderful man. I will always remember his pipe in hand and the the twinkle in his eye. My heartfelt condolences to the family.
I had the privilege to work with Louie at HFH he was a great Dr and a good friend.
I am the mother of the Triplett's he delivered 45 years ago. He was the best. He was worried about my older son so that all the attention did not go to the triplets. I also thought of him often.
I am one of the 1500 babies he delivered. I've thought of him often since his retirement. I have SOOOO many fond memories of him. I always loved his tell-it-like-it-is style. I remember having an appointment with him and seeing him walk into the exam room smoking a pipe. LOL. My Mother told a story of him from early in his career when he said that "if Elvis was a good looking me, he might get somewhere". LOL. That you Doc for bringing me into this world, and for all of the care you gave me and so many others during your lifetime! There will definitely NEVER be another Doc Weisbrod! Condolences to all of his family and friends.
RIP Doc... your care will not be forgotten. Thank you for your fine care.
Blessings and condolences to your family
