    So sorry to hear of Lou’s passing. Lou was a dear friend to my mother , Ed, Chris, and me.
    I will so miss my conversations and visits with Lou.
    I know she is rejoicing in Heaven with her loved ones and friends that have gone on before her.
    Lou was like a second mother to me after my mother passed away four years ago.
    I know Lou is smiling down on us and saying don’t weep for me, but be happy that I am well.
    Love and will miss you, Janice

    Darlene and I always enjoyed our visits with Aunt Lou. Lou and Darlene had their love of quilting in common, so they always had some long conversations concerning quilting. In 2010,one of Darlene’s quilts won a ribbon in the London Quilt Show, so Aunt Lou drove her old blue truck to the show. She liked butter mints that Bob Evans sold; however, since there wasn’t a Bob Evans in London, we always got some in Somerset to take to her. If she had any fried apple pies made she always made certain we took some home. Grandpa bought a cedar chest for her and Mother. I have the one that belonged to my mother and I assume someone will take care of Lou’s.

    From the first time I met her she made me a part of the family.
    When Wanda and I would visit her she went out of her way to make us welcome.
    I enjoyed those times visiting with her.
    I know her and Wanda are rejoicing together in heaven today.
    God bless the family during this time of sorrow.
    Love you guys.
