    She was a wonderful lady so sorry for your loss. Her smiles and greetings to Abie and I at family gatherings were heart warming.

    We met Louise at Pioneer Ridge, as she was a regular participant in the services that our church, Connect Church, provides for the residents. Louise always wanted to be in the front row and she amazed us with her knowledge of all the verses to all the hymns! I’m the pianist and my husband leads the singing, and Louise never failed to thank us profusely for the music! We just learned today of her promotion to eternity. We will miss her tremendously at our services, but know that some heavenly choir will be very blessed by her heart and her voice!
