Sending our sympathy to the entire Rhoades family. We were blessed to live next door to George and Louise for over 40 years. Our memories of Louise are of a very loving and caring Mother and Grandmother. We could not have chosen better next door neighbors. They left us with lots of good memories. God's blessings to all of you.
