    Louise will be dearly missed! She was our neighbor, our friend, and most importantly our sister in Christ. We send our love and prayers to John, her children, and her precious grandsons.

  2. Louise was one of our first friends in Cabot. She invited mom and I over for lunch-the first invitation we received here- I was little, but I remember it. She was so kind, never had a harsh word for anyone. Dearly loved and very much missed.

  3. What a gracious example of living as Christ calls us all to be. Ms. Louise is a precious soul for which I thank God. I look forward to the day to praise Jesus in person with her again.

  4. I was her mothers caregiver, I would text her to see how Mrs Betty was doing. Louise was such a wonderful. sweet, kind woman. You will be missed. Praying for your family.

  5. Prayers for you all and Prayers for the repose of her soul. I am sorry I didn’t get to meet Miss Louise but some day we will all be reunited. I am Hannah’s Nanny, I know she and Rylee will miss her very much.

    Gone but never forgotten, I was blessed that she called me friend. My prayers will always be with the family. God bless you
