Winn, Alan and Families,
Our sincere condolences on the death of your mom. Bud and Louise were early summer neighbors from long ago. At about age 10, I learned her trick of putting a thumb print in the middle of hamburg patties to keep them from shrinking. Louise filled the depression with Worcestershire Sauce (how exotic). She always had a warm welcome for a knock at her door, even by a youngster.
I know my folks were pleased when the Davis's made Norse Road their year-round home. There are not many of the original neighbors left. That generation is almost gone.
This community, on Follins Pond, was a great place to grow up thanks to the wonderful Moms and Dads that brought us together here.
May she rest in peace.

The last time I saw Louise was this past March, when I brought over the scrapbook I had compiled of 100 years of South Dennis Library history. We sat on the couch together, reminiscing and, as typical when Louise was around, laughing. I’m caregiver for a 94 year old husband, so I have not been able to visit since, but I will always treasure that time spent with a strong, vibrant woman who was a highlight of my 16 years at the library. I’ll miss her.
