John, Kathy & Family ~

I have wonderful memories of your Mom as our neighbor and friend
when we lived at 711 Bridge.  I can only imagine the conversation
my mother and her are having in heaven about all of us.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I always enjoyed visiting with Louise when I would go to visit my mom.  She would often sit and visit with us or have coffee with us.  Whenever she wore her pink sweatshirt, I would tell her she looked so pretty in pink, and she always said thank you.  You knew she had always been a kind, considerate person.  I will miss seeing her when I visit Mom.  And miss seeing you bringing her to church on Sunday.  My sympathy to all of your family.
