  1. she will be missed by nieces and nephews as she herself was one of 13, I gave up trying to keep a running number years ago. But she was loved by all of us

    Miranda, Freda, Joe and Jay,
    I just want you to know that I am praying for all of you in the death of Aunt Lou. After Uncle Joe passed away, I went to visit her a few times and we had some good conversations and visits. I think she enjoyed the visits as much as I did. She was a sweet lady and she will be missed. I pray that God will wrap his arms of comfort around all of you in the days and weeks ahead. Please let me know if I can do anything for you. You are in my thoughts and prayers. My love to all of you.

  3. Miranda, Kolton and Kaitlin we are so sorry for your loss. May God wrap his arms around you and comfort you.

    Much love and prayers for the family. A mothers love is never ending. In your saddest moments you will feel her presence. We have a huge family and all the support you need. I will lend a listening ear if you need one. She is now home with her beautiful mom and your daddy. But know she has left a part of herself here within you all

    Joe, Jay, Freda, and Miranda,
    There are no words of comfort. Just know that she is in the comfort of the Lord’s arms now. It’s been 19 years this year we lost dad and I still miss him so much. We just lost mom less than a year ago. We will all miss her and will keep you all in our thoughts. Love you all.

  6. Joe, Jay, Freda and Miranda,
    I know there is nothing I can say that makes it easier but your mom loved all of you so much. She will be so missed. If you need me for anything please let me know. Love all of you.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I know how hard it is to lose your mama. I remember when I was a little girl and y’all used to live on the farm and I loved visiting. I would help Aunt Lou feed the chickens, collect the eggs and ride the horses. This was before you born Miranda. I never heard her say a bad thing about anybody. She was such a sweet lady.
