My fondest memories of Ms. Louise are her sweet hugs during the greeting time at Living Water. She would always say "you know you better come give me a hug!" And I did know! I looked forward to seeing her smiling face each Sunday, and if I didn't get to greet anyone else I was sure to see her and get my hug. It has been 8 years since we were called to the ministry and her sweet hugs have been sorely missed. One day, in the not so distant future, I will see Ms. Louise again and no doubt will hear those words "you know you better come give me a hug!" Until then, Ms. Louise!

Family, please know you are in my thoughts and prayers! May God's comfort and peace fill you during this brief time of separation.

What a treasure Ms Louise has always been in our lives. As Charter members of LWBC, we worked together to begin a new work in our community and she was ever present with willing hands. What an example she has been as she served our Lord in many capacities, including a wonderful teacher that all of the little ones loved, and a committed, always present choir member.
Her light heartedness, laughter, and love for her Ernest will remain wonderful memories until we meet again.
Until then, our Dear Friend, rejoice in His presence ~~ Carolyn & Roger

I will always remember Mrs Louise, from the church and Choir! She was always so faithful to both, and always so pleasant to me with a smile. I loved her Godly ways and she will be missed, but now home with Earnest and our savior Jesus!

Ms. Louise was a wonderful, God loving woman.
When we first came to Living Water Baptist Church, she was one of the first ones to welcome us to the family.
Her smile and loving arms, I will miss!
She and Mr. Ernest are with each other and they are walking the streets of gold together with Our Lord and Savior!
I love you Ms. Louise!

I have such fond memories of Mrs Louise. She was always faithful to her church and family. We could always count on Mrs Louise for support at LWBC. Though she isn’t with us her memories will always be in our hearts ♥️
