Aunt Louise, I will always remember the summers that I spent time staying with you and Uncle Jeff. You were the best Aunt anyone could have and looked after us after our parents passed away. May you rest in peace with your loved ones. Love you always. Your niece Lois

My sympathy to the family of Louise Green. Louise and my Mother Louise Britsch were good friends and class mates years ago. Since my Mother passed 10 yrs ago, I sincerely hope the two Louises are meeting again in Heaven.
