Louise, my heart is broken along with many family members and friends, that you are no longer with us. You have such a kind, thoughtful & generous heart, a one of a kind. Even though we all know that you are in a much better place there's a void left for those that were left behind. You are so dearly loved and will be missed by so, so many, more that words can express. RIP my sweet lady (meme). Love You Wendy. Prayers for the Family.

Louise truly was one of the sweetest ladies that I have ever known. We shared a lot of good times (and she saw me through some not so good times - she was Always there for me).
I will miss her so much!!!!
My deepest sympathy to this sweet family. You are in my prayers.

Louise was the sweetest person I have ever met. I loved talking with her. Her little smile and sense of humor were adorable. Much love to the family who are equally sweet. My most sincere condolences.
You will be missed.

Louise was a remarkable lady and well liked by all. I had the privilege of working directly with her at Hertz for 28 years and knowing her for 44 years. She was so respected in everything she did and I was very fortunate to be able to work with her directly. She has always remained a trusted loyal friend whom will be greatly missed.

I am deeply saddened by her passing and my condolences go out to her entire family. She was truly an Angel here on earth.

Louise was a special lady and a wonderful neighbor. I wish I could have seen her before her passing to let her know how special she was to me. Prayers for the family. Your loss will be felt by many. Rest In Peace Louise.

To the family,
My heart is broken. 2000 characters would never be space enough to say what this sweet lady meant to me.
She walked me to my desk in 1977 on my first day at Hertz . She always made sure I had someone to go to break and lunch with. The sweetest lady ever. To be honest, for the longest I thought she only treated me like this, but she treated everyone with the same caring heart of gold.
In my opinion, if you look in the dictionary for "best person in the world", you will find Louise's name.
Louise I will miss you. You were a friend, mentor, mother (adopted mother) beyond expectation.
Till we meet again. Fly high Louise fly high
