Geep and family-----so sorry to hear about Louise. She was a special person to me and we talked often by phone. So many memories. You are on my mind, as always-----Karen and I were just talking about "the good old days" Friday afternoon and Louise was part of conversation. Geepy-what can I say except you be proud of her and George and know you are in my prayers and MIND forever. ALWAYS--------------Donzie

I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of that dear, dear lady. She was so spunky and funny and wise and lovable. She was truly a light for Main St. UMC. Much love to all the family! Prayers for all of you.
