Dear Family,

Louise was a wonderful, caring and courageous lady! We shared some nice times together and knew each other through Epiphany’s Healing Blanket Ministry. I will never forget her strength and resilience during her long health journey. She will be missed by many of us!

I just wanted to pass on our deepest sympathy about our dear friend and neighbor, Louise. Our hearts are breaking to lose such a beautiful lady, but our memories are full of good times with her. Everytime I see her home across the street I am reminded of her and that even though she is gone, her spirit lives on in that house. Louise was the first person I met when I moved to Wisteria 9 years ago and she welcomed me with open arms. Her heart was open as well. To her family, I know that you are hurting and I am sending you prayers of comfort and thoughts of you. To all of her other friends, we share a common loss. Louise, everytime I see a sparkle…I will forever think of you!

Known to our family as Howard Hipp’s life long family friend who likes to wear stylish hats, we offer our prayers and condolences to Louise’s family and friends at this time of great loss. To Howard, Louise was his “older sister” with whom he shared many memories and happy times–and that is more than enough for us to stand by him and support him and Louise’s family in their grief over her passing. May she be granted the lasting peace that Christ promises– she deserves no less!
