Life Story Info
I loved visiting with Lou. She was always welcoming, always had a smile, and was so caring and sweet. It was great to live in the same neighborhood as Lou, whose daughter, Sue was my very good friend for many years. Grateful for Lou's sweet countenance, and hope her family members feel the peace of her spirit.
We.are so sorry for your loss. Lou was always smiling and always so pleasant. No matter who was addressing her. Very kind and loving. She truely was an Angel, and lived up to her husband's nickname. I know she is so happy to be greeted by her dear husband and family members who have gathered anxiously to welcome her home. Missing her will be hard as well, but she is now her younger self now being the loving gracious person she has always been.
