We were so sorry to hear this sad news. Jim and I were visiting Mom on Friday and had just been talking about Aunt Louise with her when Jim Walker called. Even though we can't be there in person, please know you are all in our hearts on this difficult day. Love, Jim, Janey and family

Louise and I shared a special friendship for 50 years I will miss her greatly. Doesn't seem possible that we won't get to have those visits we both enjoyed. She was a lovely lady and truly that. I know her service will be the special one she so deserves. Louise and George had a wonderful life together providing a very real role model of what family is. Cherish your memories of them both; I know Don and I will. We are out of state so unable to share in the service of a life well lived. Don & Barb
Additionally the pictures are wonderful; I tried not to cry, but I did. Good job sharing those with the rest of us.

Grandma (as I called her for most of the time I knew her) was one of the most patient and loving women in my life. She taught me many things including cooking and sewing. I am so thankful that she and Grandpa lived such wonderfully long and happy lives and shared so much with Shawn.
I will miss her.
