Tom, Debbie, Tim, and family, I was so sorry to hear of Ms Louise's passing! She was such a sweet lady. I know she be missed greatly.
My sympathies and condolences to all the family!
May the angels wrap their arms around you all, and comfort you!
May the Lord comfort and strengthen you!
God saw she was getting tired,
And a cure was not to be
So he put his arms around her
And whispered
Come with Me.

With tearful eyes we
watched her suffer,
And saw her fade away.
Although we loved her dearly,
We could not make HER stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands at rest,

God broke our hearts
to prove to us,
He only takes the best.

We love you and
we miss you.

Tom, so sorry to hear of your loss of a sister. Louise was very much adored by my mother and I knew about her primarily through that source as well as yours. I know she is with Jesus and that is so comforting to all of us left here.
