I am so sorry for your loss. 75 years of marriage is a testimony of great commitment that both of you had in all that you did. I remember her so fondly at all of the Trinity garage sales. She will be missed by many. Cherish all of your wonderful memories of being together.

Pete and Family
Our thoughts and prayers for you now and the days ahead.
Louise had a long struggle and we do not know the struggles you
Endured caring for her but you were her soulmate and best friend!
The years we worked together at Rogers Bros. with Josephine and
Even with Julian's cigar smell and smoke were good times!
The friendship we have will always be special.
With our sincere sympathy and love.
Chuck and Ethel
