Lou was my Dear cousin through the Gresham Family. She , Bill and I
shared many special moments together at Family Gatherings and Reunions. She was my kind of Southern Lady and a joy to be around.
Lou gave me all the Gresham Genealogy information that She and Bill
acquired in researching our family history. I will treasure it and pass it
on per her wish. We Love and Miss You Lou!!!

Karyn, The pictures bring back so many wonderful memories of your family. Randy and I shared so many good times with Lou and Bill. It is difficult to accept that all three are no longer with us. We do know they are now together in a better place. Loosing your Mom leaves an empty space that no one can fill. She will live on in your heart with all the wonderful memories. Lou was a special friend and until she lost Bill, she was always the happiest person around and made everyone around her more cheerful with her beautiful smile and laughter.
My thoughts and prayers are with you. Distance prevents my being there. With my love and sincere sympathy. Carolyn

Karyn,
I love the picture...I can hear her laughing! I'm so sorry this world has lost such a wonderful lady, but rejoicing with you that she is fully healed and with Jesus. Death is not the end for those who love Him, but instead the beginning! I'm praying peace for all of your family. Love you my sweet friend.

Karyn,

My heart goes out to you and your family. Loosing a parent is so very hard. Cherish the memories you have with your mom and take some comfort that she is with Jesus.

Although I never met your mother I can tell she was a very good woman because I have met her daughter, you can tell what a wonderful mother she was when you see how her children are in her image.

God bless,

John and Lin West
