Dear cousins. I, my mom, Joey, Brian, Candace and Madelyn Grace want you to know that our prayers are with you and Louise at this time. The one constant with Louise, Rita and John were their smiles…great smiles. It’s always tough to lose someone you love, but it sure helps knowing she’s now with Bob, Omie and Grandpa, John, Marge and the family. No more worries, no more pain. Take care and God Bless. Love always, Terry Dufour and Family
We met Louise through her daughter, Pat. Louise was a lovely, lovely lady and it was very obvious her children and grandchildren meant the world to her. In turn, her entire family loved her dearly. This was very apparent as they always spent time with her during her good years, and also tended to her needs through the difficult times in the nursing home.
Mom’s and Grandma’s are very special people in our lives and it is always difficult to say good-bye, whether it is a blessing or not.
Our hearts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.
Judy and John Herrygers
