  1. Louie & Family,
    I’m praying for you during this time of loss. I ask that God abundantly give each of you His grace and comfort during this difficult time.


  2. I just found out about the passing of you Mother and want you to know you are in my thoughts and prayers. After losing my Dear Mother a few months ago we are never ready to lose them but are blessed to know they are in a better place and in God’s loving arms.

  3. Dear Louie and Shelia,
    I am so sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers during this very sad time. Precious memories of her will remain in your hearts always. May God give you peace knowing that your Mother is resting with Him in Heaven now.
    Love, Brenda
