I remember Aunt Louise as a beautiful lady. She came to my mothers at Christmas time and after dinner we would all join in to sing carols. She had a lovely voice. She also had a great sense of humor and was fun to be around. You children will be in my thoughts and prayers. Helen (Baby) Scherff Parsons-Atkinson
