One year goes past and still and we are faced with fighting and controversy. As I previously stated there are several facts surrounding the events of my sister's murder- but honestly, the bottom line is that SHE IS DEAD. Yes, she was killed in one of the worst and most brutal ways imaginable, but would it really have been any easier if she died of cancer or a brain tumor or AIDS or perhaps was hooked to a ventilator for hours, or days, or weeks, or perhaps months? My answer: Who's to judge??? And my guess is no.

Granted, we watched our sister battle from a disease: domestic abuse.
We watched her husband David battle from disease: Alcohol & poor mental health. It's just as real and unpreventable as the worst and deadliest diseases in the world. Domestic violence is not an easy solution. Sure, it seems easy- but no one knows how truly difficult it is until you are placed in that situation. GOD knows we tried everything to save both of their lives.

I donít know all of you who posted comments about Weazy & Dave and this crazy situation, but I ask to keep it tasteful and remember my sister in a positive light. She is so greatly missed. Words cannot explain the feeling of emptiness I have in my heart (as with the rest of my family).

If you have any questions or would like to vent about how much of an as*hole (or whatever other choice words you prefer) my brother-in-law was (at least according to many), please, just email me directly ([email protected]).

Please do not try to destroy and humiliate his name anymore than it already is. Not only is it unfair to him, but more importantly- his two children who are still living and walking this earth today and have to go day to day knowing that their father murdered their mother. Again, if for nothing else- I ask that you be considerate of them. Obviously nerves are getting hit on this topic- and rightfully so. Please, leave this site to honor my sister and carry her name into eternity.

P.S. Thank you to all of you who have showed me and my family unconditional love and support!

Dave and Weazy were really good friends with my dad. it has been a year and i still wonder why and how. im not very sure but please just stop and think before you write something hateful. AS people said. Gina and DAve are still walking this earth and they hear about how their dad murdered their mom and they think about it everyday. Just please stop and think because Gina and Dave do not deserve this! They are great children and they already think about this everyday, and they probably do not want people trashing their dad over this. granted, yeah he was wrong and vicious, but these kids shouldnt have to think about this, and it hepls if people stop dissing their family. STOP! yes, dave did do a wrong thing, but the kids still love him. dont they?

Well, it has taken me some time to get the courage to post here.
I love Louise and I say that because I still love her, she will live on in my heart forever. I spent plenty of time with her and her family.
I just want to continue to keep the entire family in my prayers.
My kids miss Aunt Louise and Uncle Dave, but remember them in their prayers at night.
People don't need to know personal family business and should be respectful of all of that.
So, to the entire DeSantis family, you continue to be in our prayers. I can't tell you how much I miss Louise, she was a bright light in my life and now a bright star in the sky.
She will always be in my heart and I love and miss her something horrible.
Gina and David, we love you both as well. Gina, I enjoyed our last conversation that we had not long ago.
Keep your head up, keep inspired and take care of your little brother.
I love the entire DeSantis family, peace, prayers and abundant blessings

Wow,couldn't sleep tonight so I thought I would go through some old stuff and I bumped into this. Reading all of the threads on this really still makes this situation unbeilvable like it has just happened. My wife and I deal with this pain everyday as we take care of Gina and David. It has changed our lives tremendously and to see some positive stuff on here really helps knowing some people really care. I do miss my sister in law and Dave dearly. I just wan't to say thanks for the support from those who do care. Though we will never forget we must continue to move forward with this pain. I LOVE my Family dearly
seeing each and everyone of you deal with this pain, I wish I could do something to take it away, instead I will be there for you and be in pain with you!

They were both wonderful people. Louise was a beautiful girl, with a heart as big as the sun shines. She was my friend
David would help anybody. He was my friend,He was a gentle giant and I loved the two of them. I pray that God forgave David. Because David had not known what he had done. Something terrible got into David and I hope our society comes to our sences and listens to our children. Listen real good and communicate with them.

Pissed, thanks for the kind words. Some people just dont understand the ache of losing two people that we love in this way. Hopefully, no one will have to experience the pain we go through every day. For the others that dont understand what happend that day and like to talk shit, feel free to visit my house. Lastly, I wanted to thank everyone that knew or didnt know my sister and bro-n-law for their thoughts and prayers.
hopeful prayer

Hey "dave cap sr". First, Mr. Capriotti. Sr. has not been among us for many years. Second, for the things you said here? Watch your back because what goes around comes around and whether it's you or one of your family members who you cherish - I wonder who will get what's coming because of your cruelty toward this family in an online forum. "Karma", what a concept... and Karma usually strikes in the real world, so remember that ya fuzzy piece of white, frozen-over $hit.

By the way - my name is Mario and I grew up in Clifton Heights right across the street from Dave and I knew some DiSantis's in school way back then too. Dave and I went to Sacred Heart from first grade in Sr. Sadonia's class - the one who looked like Winston Churchill in a habit. Anyway, this is a really sad thing, too damned sad - and my heart goes out to the families and especially the kids in such a big way. Don't let idiots like the f***face who posted above under Dave's dad's name touch you in any way. Like I told him - his day is coming like it usually does to viral scum.

I was looking for info about the website for Weazy when I came across this article and comments.
2 years later and Weazy is still missed bymany friends and athletic organizations that either she or the kids were involved in.
God Bless You, Weazy!

dave cap sr...WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE???? How dare you? If you have ANYTHING to say about EITHER Louise or David, I want you to confront me directly. Louise is MY sister. MY SISTER. And David is my BROTHER-IN-LAW.

And which little daughter are you speaking of??? Or is the a metaphor??

You are scum- any of you who can speak ill of anyone in my family or about anyone else's family who has had misfortunes.

We all know that what David did was horrendous; however, unless you were there you have no right to speak ill of him. We all have our own opinions- just keep them to yourself.

Here are my email addresses.
[email protected] or [email protected]

And, if you want my phone number to hash it out, I will gladly give it a go. I have stood back and kept my cool long enough. STOP SAYING MEAN AND NASTY THINGS ABOUT LOUISE & DAVID OR ANYONE ELSE INVOLVED. If you would like to know the truth or anything else, contact me. Stop playing the damn guessing game and pretending like you know ANYTHING.
