To the editor:
The Benefit/Tribute for Lou Festo — A Night of Family, Friends and Music was truly all that on Saturday evening, March 24.
Family and friends from near and far came to celebrate with Lou, a lifetime of music, friendship and love. Many memories remembered and this evening, new ones made.
My special thanks to his brother, Joe Festo, lifetime best friend Tom Reilly and best friend/band mate Timothy Rand for all their help in organizing the event. Without them, it couldn't have happened. We also want to thank everyone on the "staff" that helped. You are truly all good friends and we can't thank you enough for all you did. I wish I could name you all, but you know or you are!
Lastly but not least, we want to thank everyone who came out Saturday for making it a very special evening for Lou. You made it one night that will be remembered for a long time.
Most of all, I wish to thank Karen Jortberg for the countless hours of planning and organizing for this event.
