Don and Scott,. Lou was such a special person to me. She always had a smile on her face and never met a person who did not like her. Lou was like a second mother to me. Always wanted to know how my family was and had such positive words of praise. 😆. God has now has a very special angel in heaven. Tancy and I will deeply miss her😤

Lou and a couple of other friends and I used to go out regulary for lunch. Many times Lou would run onto others who knew her. Almost always she would say after their conversation that the person was "A very special friend." I think she thought that of most people as she loved everyone. And we loved her in return and miss her.

Steve and Don met while policing together and remain friends. We thoroughly enjoyed our stays in Myrtle Beach with Don and Lou. We always enjoyed visiting both of them in their DeKalb home. We will very much miss Lou. She was truly a woman after God's own heart. Love, Steve and Diane
