She was a prayer warrior and showed love to everyone, and always ready to help! Not much in the way of worldly goods but the treasures she laid up in Heaven were amazaing! My life was blessed in knowning,her!

  10. To my precious cousins, Mickey, Jimmy, Marie, Ross and Rosalie, to Uncle Lee, Aunt Simmie and Aunt Margie,

    We have all been blessed by the life that Auntie Lou lived. This beautiful, humble and gentle lady owned nothing materially in this world, but she continuously gave from her meager sustenance! It was just a few months ago that I ran into her at the courthouse where I work and she asked me what I was doing. I explained that I was working on the United Way Campaign and she said “I want to give to United Way!” She pulled out an opened roll of quarters from her purse and said “this is my bus money and I want to give it to your campaign!” I said “Auntie I can’t take this, you need the money!” But she insisted saying that she was blessed and she wanted to help. This precious lady who gave so unselfishly all that she had, now stands dressed in royal robes in the presence of our King of Kings and Lord of Lords! She is truly blessed! I will always love you Auntie! Your niece, Barbara
