Dearest Dave, Donald and Families,Thinking of you since the loss of your mother and grand-mother. May it help to know that we feel your loss.We loved Lou Lou too. For sure she loved each of you, as she never failed to speak about her love for each member of family. Every visit was a new story of what the grand children, and great-grand children were doing, and perhaps a new picture to show off.I can`t count on my fingers the number of times she told me how much she loved our mother and father, Lucille and Milton. When Daddy was living and we would visit Lou Lou and Shortie and their family, often we would get just enough of a juicy story of their youth, to where we had a laugh, but often there was more to the story than Lou Lou would let the others tell, for it may not be the thing to tell in front of us children. Lou Lou was always a real lady in every way, always working hard, to keep the house just perfect, and so much good food cooked. It was so important to her that we have dessert and drink at every visit. She really liked the fact that I would help her with the meal, washing dishes, or just serving the treats. Dad died in January 1970, and we still had so many nice visits, which always gave Mom a lift, as she valued the time we spent as a family.God Bless Each of You, and May You Honor Lou Lou and Shortie by being happy, and knowing that their love stills lives through each of their children.With our computer skills you may have received two previous notes that may or may not make sense. Perhaps this message is clear, we are thinking of you. Come to see us. Love and Prayers,
Dear Dave & Donald, and Families. May it help to know that others feel your loss. We all loved Lou Lou so much. May you always honor & respect your mother`s wishes. She loved you all so much.Our Love and Prayers as you face the days ahead. God Bless You.
