I was saddened at the news that we lost Lou Ludwig recently. We found out today through the Q&A as Silvia Dukes PA, Broker Associate, CRS, CIPS, SRES raised the question today and Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! updated us.

Lou was the epitome of a gentleman and always posted very positive antidotes in his blog. I remember many short, pleasant exchanges with him over the years on our posts. 


Lou will be missed, but remembered. This was one of my favorite posts by Lou I re-posted back in February 2107, it seems appropriate given the news:


When Writing the Story of Your Life 

Education & Training with Ludwig & Associates
February 13, 2017 02:33 PM


 “When writing the story of your life,

don’t let anyone else hold the pen.”



As I see it . . . . . . .

When writing the story of your life


It’ your life . . . . It’s your story . . . . You make the choices on how to live your life . . . .  and the story that you will write.


Make the choice on the type of life that you want to live . . . . and make the decision to live it. Take the actions that will create that life . . . . with the determination to make it happen.


When writing the story of your life . . . . you have the pen in your hand to write the story the way you chose to write it.  Stay in control of your life . . . . and the pen.  Write a master piece . . . . one that your proud to live . . . . and write.

Thomas, this is a beautiful post written to honor a beautiful person who shared so much of his knowledge and wisdom with us over the years. Lou will be missed not only here on AR but also in the CRS family, Florida Realtors and by all who got to know him. Thank you for writing this post.

I've always enjoyed reading Lou's stuff as well. Sometimes he would even grace with me with his presence on my blog, and that was such an honor. I'm sorry to hear he has passed away. I mean, we all have to go sometime, but still it's a shock. Some people you just don't think of dying, and Lou was one of those guys. I thought he'd live to be 100. I'm so sorry. Nice write up, Thomas.
