Our deepest sympathies to Louise's family.
She was one of the nicest people we've ever known. We met her after we purchased her & doc's family home in Lou Del. We loved hearing stories about her children growing up there.
A very kind & good hearted lady. She will be missed but not forgotten.

Such a wonderful lady. She will be missed by many. She welcomed my son into the Williams family. It was an honor knowing her.
