I just learned of Louise's passing. I knew her at St. Cecelia Academy in Nashville during our teenage years. I am so happy that she had a wonderful marriage and life. I am so sorry for your loss.

I am heartbroken over Louise's passing so suddenly after such a long battle. Louise was my "star pupil" for the last decade. She worked so hard and I am so proud to have been part of her journey, and she was so proud of herself too! She was a force to be reckoned with and a joy to know. Every time I see a bunny, do a walking lunge, or even think about chocolate, I will think of Louise. Beloved client, friend, big sister, and funny girl. I am so sorry for your deep loss John. Prayers for peace for you. ~kelly mcginnis
