    We have known Louise for many years, having met at Immaculate Conception Church. We sat next to Louise, Val and Joe at Mass every Sunday. She just missed her 90th birthday on the 14th of this month. Louise did not have an easy life, but was amazing in how she would bounce back from everything. She was a most special person, and must be enjoying being a pain free and happy family together again, for eternity. Love, Pat and Joe

    I’m stunned right now as I was not notified of Louise’s death. I live in Florida and learned by surfing the Internet. Have been calling her number for days. My heart is broken and hurts worse to find that she’s gone this way. I will miss our talks. RIP Louise.
