Mrs Louise was such an amazing women. I am very blessed to have spent what time I could an did with her. I loved her dearly an treated her as if she was my grandmother. I loved listening to her tell me stories about her life on the mountain in sneedville. I wish I could have spent more time with her but the Lord knows best an she is in a much better place now. She loved when I took her out she never once told me She didn't wanna go with me. She will always be in my heart. I loved her an will miss her very much. She has an amazing family as well they treated me as if I was part of the family an not just there mothers caregiver. That meant the world to me. Louise was not just my job, she was my family an she was a very special person to me. I'm praying for the love ones she left behind for strength. I'm sure it is very hard losing a mother,grandmother, great grandmother an great great grandmother. I want to thank the family for accepting me an giving me the opportunity to take care of her.
