My deepest sympathy? Luella was one of a kind and I so admired her. Larry enjoyed her so when she worked at the school and lots of laughs shared. She has earned her place in Heaven.

Our deepest sympathy goes out to the family of Lou. I loved to see her come into the bank & our visits. She was always on the go & so pleasant! We also remember Lou back in our Durant Elementary years as a cook serving us hot lunch. She was a wonderful lady & will greatly be missed. Heaven has gained another Angel.
