Bill and Ann, Sincere sympathy to you and the Family. I'm so sorry I cannot be at the visitation this evening as my chorus is singing at The Muny preshow this evening. Louise was certainly a special lady and I will always remember her smile and love of her friends! Take care and prayers are with you. In Harmony, Jeannie Lowry

We will dearly miss Louise. We haven’t visited lately but we had many hours of enjoyment together. She was a great friend. We are unable to attend the funeral because we are out of town. Our love and prayers go to her family. Mark and Jody Vernier.
