    As an extraordinary lady in many ways, Mrs. Louise Hamric will be dearly missed by all those who knew her. Her beautiful smile, her positive outlook, her immaculate clothing attire, her keen intellect, her wonderful Christian testimony–these are just some of the precious memories of her that we will always cherish. Visitors who saw her in the nursing home often remarked that she seemed to encourage others just by her delightful personality. She sometimes wondered why the Lord delayed taking her to her eternal home. Perhaps it was because she was such a wonderful blessing to others. We will miss her, but we know she has been promoted to glory.

    May God’s Holy Spirit (the “Comforter”) and His Word provide strength, comfort, and assurance to this wonderful family.

    My what memories flood my soul! Aunt Louise was a wonderful great Aunt, quite witty, always a smile & always spoke her mind but always had an encouraging word! The hours she & my gran & aunt Rebecca would spend playing bridge or cards & their reminiscing about their days growing up & the sweet laughter is something I’ll never forget! She’d always have me set with her at the cattle auctions, such memories I’ll always Cherish! What a legacy she leaves her children & extended family. My thoughts and prayers are with my family, cousins & more. May God comfort you all, be blessed ;)
