Louise was the kindest of ladies and a friend to everyone.  Her beautiful smile and loving ways will be missed by all who knew her.

My condolences to the family for your loss. From an early age on I admired Louise's gentle yet cheerful nature. The first time I ever had homemade toffee was at her and Al's house. She always was welcoming and kind. A gracious lady who will be missed by many.
