All of the family are in my prayers as Louise celebrates her eternal life. Families with love ones who loose their memories have to let go twice. I know you rejoice that her physical journey is over and that she has gone on to heaven to be with Lee. I hope Shanabarger hasn't trumpted her ace yet - cause you know they are having a great game of cards with their friends. I have fond memories of sharing times with all of you at the house and at the lake. Love and prayers - Sr. Therese Carew

Dear Sister Joyce, and Rita and John, family; With deepest Sympathy for the loss of your Mom. I share with you this loss. She was a grand lady, and was ready to go home to be with your Dad, see her Parent's, brother's, and other family member's and friend's. Her legacy of being very much a likeable, special lady, for enriching lives of everyone that knew her; she'll never be forgotten, and her love and respect she had for our Lord, this was her vow to family, friend's as well. She taught these everyday of her life, shared her thoughts on the differences of right and wrong, and was very heartful with concern to all she met, carried her head proud of you both; Sister Joyce and Rita. She learned about being with an extremely smile on her face when she could remember,and share her memories of the past. All in all; your Mom was a gift from God many years ago to her Parents that guided her on a right path through prayer, respect, and she became a wife to Lee, and mother, grandmother and won her reward; heaven, where we all will see her again someday. Louise enriched my life from a young age, and I grew up knowing her to be a grand lady, and proud to have her in my life, and will miss her alot.

There is a time for everything, and it's your mom's time to return home. Now she and your dad's goodness live in you. Continue to live their goodness and share it.
