My aunt Louise was a great mom and a great sister and a great aunt she was a wonderful human. She was always taking care of everyone that entered her home. She never complained she loved God and if you met her you knew she was a Godly woman. I am so happy she is with God now and her family in heaven. She will be missed by me and my family but I know she can finally rest.
