  1. Our prayers are being sent up for each and everyone of you. Lou was more like a sister to me as we grew up together as cousins in Indiana. So many memories as we sat under the lilacs sewing and exchanging secrets. May God keep her in the palm of his hands!

  2. Glen,
    So sad to hear of your loss. Our prayers are with you and your family.

  3. Lou is my oldest sister, but she was a Mom to me as well. Her self described responsibilies included; teacher (reading, Latin, music, cooking, personal care, sewing), emotional counselor (boyfriends, teen angst, mothering, friendships), being the greatest example of motherhood, and showing everyone how to exhibit love in action.
    I will miss her everyday; but, I will attempt to be the woman she insisted I become. Thank you, Lou.
    Love, Sue

  4. My Mother.
    The constant force of my life. I miss her every day. I think about her all the time. Her laugh was amazing. Her love of all things history. Her love of nature. Her love of family.

    Such a wonderful woman that I love.
