    Goodbye sweet Aunt Louise. You had a long and wonderful life and I was so happy to be a part of it. You served as my devoted “second mother” when I was a baby and toddler. Your life exemplified serenity, patience and giving to others. Your sons definitely showed you had taught them well! I will miss you.
    With love,

    In addition to my previous comment, I should have commended you all, Jim, Tom and David, for the loving care you provided for Aunt Louise throughout her life. You were assisted I know by Tracy, Louise and a slew of cousins and grandchildren. What a wonderful family! You have my condolences, my thanks and my admiration.
