    My prayers are with all of you in the loss of Lou. She was the last remaining sister of my dad Clint. I remember her playing with me as a child on the farm and then her infectious laugh and wonderful sense of humor. May God's comforting and sustaining presence be with you in this time of mourning. With love, Anne

    I join my cousins; Diane, Barbara and Jeff in mourning the death of their dear mother Lou. She was such a special person! Her mischievous humor is the base for many of my delightful memories of her. My mother Irene and Lou were very close so I got to see her often. I will cherish those memories. Lou will always be in my heart. I hope happy memories ease your pain during this difficult time.
