How can you share just one experience of this wonderful lady? She like her red beanie hat and always looked so cute in it. She was always there when we were making things for our fundraiser we had at church. She loved the girlfriends group were we meet once a month. I have truly missed her sweet smile at church. God has another angel and I can't wait to see her there with that red beanie and wonderful smile.

Such a special, gracious, Christian lady. She and her sisters were wonderful members of First United Methodist Church, the church I’ve attended for the past 39 years. Louise was an incredible role model who will be missed by so many.

I was so sorry to hear about Mrs. Brooks...she was such a sweet lady. I have a lot of memories of going to their house with Lisa. The best memory I have is when my dad bought me a poodle that was supposed to be small but turned out to be BIG!!!! He told me he would get me another one if I could find a home for the BIG one....well long story short Mrs. Brooks took him and if I remember correctly he had a long wonderful life with her. I tried to stay in touch with Mrs. Brooks but hadn't talked to her in a while...just want Lisa and the family to know they are in my thoughts and prayers.
