I was named after Louise by my mom, and her twin sister, Elouise. What an honor to have the name of someone has always meant as much as Louise has to my mom, and to me. I have many, many childhood memories of Louise and all the family being around at theirs and our houses, reunions, etc. One of the things I remember most growing up are all the clothes that Louise would sew. I'm sure she made Lynn's clothes and maybe the boys, but I was always intriqued by the doll clothes she made - the detail and the scale of them being so little was just amazing.
The thing I always looked forward to when seeing Louise was her smile - a smile that was just a glipse into what a sweet, sweet lady she was and is.
