My beautiful dear Friend Kelley, Pauline, Dina and Stacey, I don't even know where to begin, my heart aches for you, so many memories, he lectured me, he was in my wedding with Kelley, my son called him papa Lou when he was young even tho he was actual uncle Lou. I love you guys all so much. I have lit a candle in his honor, like I do for Erin. I like to think they have found each other looking down saying they are okay, God Bless you all. Love you all Kelly

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Lou. I worked with him at CCSO for many years, and he was my friend. My late husband, Bruce Ogden and I were "gym buddies" with Lou for several years. He was a great CSI, wonderful man, devoted husband and father. He will be miss by many. God bless.

Dearest Cochi Family, With sincere deepest sympathy, please know you are all in my thoughts and ongoing prayers during this difficult time of sorrow. So many fond memories of Mr. Cochi (Lou) and our beautiful families growing & enjoying life together (going back to the late 1960’s) will forever be held in my heart. One of my favorite memories is when we all went horseback riding together up in the Adirondacks. Love and hugs to you all! Dawn Bechard & Family

I first met Lou when he was working as a crime scene investigator with the CCSO. He was always smiling and showed kindness to everyone around him. He made a difficult job just a little easier. He will be missed.
