    I'm sorry to hear about your recent loss. This is a difficult time for all who knew Louise. Hope that the words of Psalms 46:1 can bring you some comfort. It says: "God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress." Yes, our God cares so much for each one of us and promised us that we can be able to see our loved ones that have died, for he promised in Acts 24:15 that there will be a resurrection. Imagine welcoming back to life Louise right here on earth! This is sure to come because we have the guaranty from Isaiah 55:11 that you can read in your own Bible. Deepest condolences!

    I knew Louise from community chorus and also subbed for her a few times playing at her church. Louise was a sweet and talented woman. Condolences to her family.
