April, Sorry to hear of your mother’s death. We always enjoyed her time in the drug store with Clarabelle. I’ve always admired her strength in hard times. Love in Christ, Walter and Jill

Deepest sympathy to you all. Mrs. Lou was a very sweet lady. She will always be the Christmas tree lady to me!

We will miss seeing Lou out in the yard. She enjoyed the outdoors and I think she enjoyed picking up leaves! May it bring comfort to the family to know she is at peace and her body is no longer filled with pain. Love and prayers to each family member.
