Tina, Tommy, Johnny and families...we are so sorry to hear of Aunt Louise passing. Our memories of all of the great, fun times with her and your family will forever be cherished. Her laugh was contagious! It's been a rough few months for our families. But, knowing that my dad, your mom and dad are now laughing together again...whole and free of pain is comforting. Sending love to all.
