    May God’s comfort and peace be yours in the days ahead,
    Larry and Celia

  3. Dearest Diane, Denise and Paul: My heart goes out to each of you. I am so blessed to have been a part of this family throughout my childhood and adult life. Louise was a Godly and Precious lady, and to be part of her life was a blessing to me. Her and mother had so many good times, I can only image what they are talking about now. She is now joined with the love her life and having the best reunion! I can see your daddy, mother and my mother now in heaven talking and waiting on Billy (my daddy). One day we will all be together again. Hold on the memories because that is what will get you through this difficult time.
    May God’s comfort and peace be with you in the days to come. Let him wrap his arms around you and lean on him! Always know that your mother touched so many people while she was here on this earth! I love you all very much! Jill Moore Crews

  4. My most sincere condolences to all the family. Louise was a wonderful person. I remember so well the kindness and love that she and Gordon showed to me when I was a member of the family.
