Donna my sincere condolences to You and Your family ... This Lady is still in so many of my memories. I grew up with her in the Jonesborough Health Dept.where my mother Marian was a nurse. When I would walk through the door there after school to wait on Mother to get off work, Louise would welcome me with a big smile and offer me a coke or snack and provide me a place to sit and read till time to close ... She was always so nice and kind to all who entered the health dept .She would also greet myself and my wife Barbara anytime we would happen to meet in later years and we would remember our time together when I was just a young man .. We met a lot of times at the recipe swap... A great memory for me.... Our prayers for You and Your family , May GOD continue to Bless You All.....Rick ...
