When I was in Charlotte in the 70's she was in the meetings there. Always a wonderful smile and spirit. She reminded me some of my mother. Hymn 317 comes to mind as I think of her now in eternity, "Sweet is the rest that come s with dawn at last"
Love Charlie

Louise was a special. She leaves lasting memories with us. Always a smile and lots of fun. Now she is in her long home. Safe and secure from earth's pains and struggles.

Louise always, always had a smile each time we went to see her. She was content. She enjoyed it when we’d sing hymns—this is something written in her heart even when she didn’t remember other things in life.
“Only the truth that in life we have spoken,
Only the seed that on earth we have sown–
These shall pass onward when we are forgotten:
Fruits of the harvest and what we have done.”
