Joe and Louise were great examples of a Christian to me (Bob) when I was a young believer at Boutte Assembly. They loved the Lord and His church, and they loved the people in it - even us rowdy teenagers. Joe gave me my first job at the car lot after school and during summers. When the church built the educational wing in the early 70s, Joe sent me to work on the building and paid my salary to help out the church. Joe and Louise taught me the priority of the church over just making money. I still remember that lesson.

Their kids invited me to youth group and church and to a Denny Duron crusade at Des Allemands in August of 1972 where I gave my heart to the Lord. During those years many of the activities around the church were tied to Joe and Louise.

Louise was an example of a good wife, mom, and grandmother. She was devoted to her family. Her passing is the end of an era, but the legacy of Christian service lives on through her family and those that she and Joe influenced. Our thoughts and prayers are with our loved ones- the Broach family and friends at Life Church in Boutte.

Louise had a profound impact on me, though I doubt she realized it. I enjoyed her outlook on life, her optimism, and her ability to shrug her shoulders at things that really didn't matter in the long run. We found humor in the same things. She was witty, and never failed to pick up on an innuendo. I suppose I should say something about her being a spiritual inspiration to me, but that's not what defined our relationship. She was a person from whom I could escape the pressures of the ministry and simply be myself. Later in life, I realized that is all God requires of us - to be ourselves and let Him do the work. Thank you, Louise, for being a friend and example to this (one time) young and naive girl.

I have very fond memories of Louise playing the piano for First Union Presbyterian Church. She was a beautiful women and a wonderful pianist. She will be missed.
