    Any time we think about my “Aunt Louise” the thoughts are of a loving, beautiful, gracious, thoughtful, lady. Although it didn’t happened often because of the miles between us, it was always a treat to be with Louise and Don
    and to see the love and respect they had for each other and the love and pride they have for their children, and then later for their children’s families.

    I’ve always been so thankful for the trip Louise and Don made to Oklahoma so Louise could be with my mother before Mom passed away – but that is the kind of heart they have always had. Also, what a great time we had with Louise and Don a few years ago when we got to spend a few days with them in their home. What a wonderful hostess Louise was. They took us to see family and the sites, but the best part of the trip was just spending the time with them.

    We grieve for Louise’s passing but we can all be assured she is now resting in the arms of her Lord…. and the wonderful memories of Aunt Louise will continue to live on.
