February 22, 1953 - February 27, 2021
Luis Octavio Toledo, aka Louis, Louie, Tavin was born to Gloria Vargas & Octavio Toledo on February 22, 1953 in Brooklyn, New York. My brother was born normal but was given too much oxygen and the doctors basically fried his brain. He was mentally incapacitated and was mentally the age of a 2 year old. Never, ever, did he get to join little league, nor did he go to school, or graduate from High School. He never had a girlfriend, nor his first kiss. Never did he have his own family or accomplish the dreams that parents wish for their kids. However, Louie brought so much joy to all who knew him. He was always happy and when he was not, he definitely let you know. He loved going to church and loved singing songs. “Alabare, Alabare, Alabare a mi Señor” was one of his favorite songs. He also loved making up songs and he’d laugh, give kisses and loved eating. He was a happy, loved person. On Monday, February 22nd, he turned 68 years old. Although doctors when he was born, didn’t expect him to live long and said not to expect much from him, in my life and my family’s life he brought so much joy. He brightened our lives with hope, laughter, wonder and was definitely an example of God’s love to us. God gives special gifts to special people and we feel privileged to have had him in our lives. On February 27th at 5:29 am the Lord called you home and you answered. Now…the house seems empty, there is no more sudden burst of laughter. No more sudden shouts. No more sudden clapping. No more listening to you sing at 2:00 am in the morning. Our lives are so sadden by your departure. However, we rejoice in knowing that the body that limited you, you are no longer bound to, I can just see you running, jumping & walking the streets of Gold. The sight you were lacking, you have recuperated, I can imagine you looking at all the wonders and glories of heaven. You are now reunited with our Savior, Jesus Christ, who you sang songs to all your life and you are reunited with “Goya” (mom) and with “Tayo” (dad). Give them a big kiss & hug from me your little sister, your brother-in-law Adelo & your nephew Christian. And please my sweet Louie, keep our secrets, secrets! Mom & Dad don’t need to know! 😊 You will live in my heart forever, my dear Louie. Till we see you again my dear brother On behalf of my family Gloria, Octavio & Louie, I want to thank my dear cousins, who helped with his care! You guys loved him and cared for him. I’m glad you were with him, when he took his last breath. We are forever grateful!
