Louise (Cameron) Anderson
April 16, 2018
I met Louise at the Coventry where my mother, Barbara Kegel, was living. Louise welcomed my mother like they were long, lost friends and they began a sweet and tender friendship. My mother was nearly blind and very hard of hearing and Louise helped her at every meal and in every way that she could. I shared a lot of dinners with Louise and Barbara and witnessed the love they shared and it still brings tears to my eyes. Both Mom and I missed Louise terribly when she moved to a different care center, but she remained firmly in our hearts. I know how much she loved her family and that you will miss her. My deepest sympathy to all of you. Debra.
