In 1968, when Donna and I lived in Ft. Worth going to Seminary at Brite Divinity School, TCU and Southwestern Baptist Seminary, Ft. Worth, we attended Grace Church led by the incredible ministry of Pastor Harold and Lou Nichols. Their anointed ministry and loving interest in us kept us strong spiritually and emotionally. They were great pastors and great parents to us. Pastor Nichols prayed over Donna and me when I was ordained as a young AG minister at the 1970 District Council AG in Texakana, Tx. This coming June, 2020, we complete 50 years of pentecostal ministry. They were both mentors to Donna and Me. We only attended Grace for about 1 year but I will forever appreciate the Nichols. Sister Nichols loving gracious touch met so much to us. On national TV, I often give much credit to the Nichols for Donna and I making it through the Liberal seminary at TCU. It was very difficult. Both of them were a GREAT BLESSING. Don Paul & Donna Gray, We currently serve with JIMMY SWAGGART MINISTRIES in Baton Rouge as a college professor and pastor and TV minister.

Lou Nichols always presented such a beautiful example of love and grace. Her joy of life and peace came into the room before she could even utter a word.

From beautiful advice as I was growing up to the encouragement that she gave me in hard times, she made a quiet but strong impact on my life and the life of my family. As we have missed Pastor Harold we will miss Mrs Lou. All our love and prayers go to the family of this amazing woman of God. You carry a great legacy

This wonderful lady was such a part of our family's life. Mom and Dad was married by Bro. Nichols and we were a part of Grace Temple forever. So loved getting her kiss on the cheek on Sunday Mornings. A lovely, lovely lady who will always be remembered.
Prayers for the family...no one can ever take the place of a"Mom" and Grandmother. A precious heritage!

In 1993 my wife and I returned to Fort Worth after 20 years. One of our top priorities was to believe God for a pastor and a home church. He led us to Grace Temple and Pastors Harold and Lou Nichols. Sister Lou and Pastor Nichols were the reason we chose to fellowship at Grace Temple. The both of them always made us feel genuinely loved and welcomed. We will forever be thankful for their life, legacy and loving spirits that touched so many people. --Larry Braziel

Prayers and condolences to the Nichols family. Thank you for sharing Sister Lou and Pastor Nichols with us. Such precious memories of Sister Lou. Looked forward to her Sunday morning Bible Studies. She was such a good example for other women to look up to and to follow. Matthew 25:34 . . . Come ye, blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world --Linda Braziel

Lou Nichols was an angel to me and my family for more than 20 years. She was a a supporter to me as a young man trying to follow the path God had for me. She and Pastor Harold opened their hearts to me, my parents and my children. Lou demonstrated in her life how to love, have compassion, be a friend and forgive others. I will always cherish her wisdom and guidance in my life. My prayers are with all her family. She has left us with a lot to remember and to celebrate.

She held a baby shower for me when I was a teen. Others in the church turned their back on me but, she didn’t. The love I felt was overwhelming. She just had a lovely spirit about her. Now I get to be a grandparent for that baby boy. She left behind a loving legacy. Rest In Peace.

What a great woman, your mom! I attended Grace Temple from early 1974 until the coffeehouse ministry became its own fellowship several years later. Your mom and dad set high standards and expectations for all of us as young Christians and encouraged us regularly. Strong in faith, faithful to each other as husband and wife and exemplary leaders and teachers in the church. We are better people today because of their influence and love! Praying for the peace that only Jesus can give in this time of loss. May the Lord bless the family richly!
