Williams Family, You have surely lost a wonderful man when Louis was taken.
He was one of the first people I met when I moved to Ringgold in 1959. He and
Doctor Cochran were like part of our McNew family and I will never forget his kindness. You surely have great memories to carry you through these difficult days ahead. Good bless. Jan McNew Hendrix
