Grandma Louise was a great person. I enjoyed going to her house as a little girl when she would baby-sit my brother and I. She taught me many great things such as knitting. I will miss her dearly.

Louise was a special Grandmother and a wonderful Child of God and we will greatly miss her. Our prayers are with you.“You can shed tears that she is gone, or you can smile because she has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all she's left. Your heart can be empty because you can't see her, or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember her only that she is gone, or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back. Or you can do what she'd want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.” (David Harkins)

My thoughts and prayers are with your family with the loss of such a dear sweet person. I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to have gotten to know her. I always enjoyed the times that I got to visit her. She will truly be missed.
