  1. My deepest sympathy in the loss of your mother, grandmother, and friend. Lou was the sweetest, kindness person, who was always thinking of others. She brightened the lives of those God placed in her path. She will be deeply missed. My prayers are with you.

  2. Met Ms Louise while she was doing her volunteer work. She was such a sweet kind lady and loved helping others. She was such a blessing to know.

  3. Kathy, Donna, Patty, and Renee –I don’t know if you will get this anymore but I just wanted to let you know how much you have been in my prayers. We just haven’t been in contact over the years like we should as family. Please know how dearly your mother was loved by us. She stayed by me the last time she visited in Iowa, which unfortunately was for Randy Van Zee’s funeral. We really had a wonderful time. May you feel the grace and peace from our Heavenly Father.
    Love to you — Karen (Katje) Klein
