So sorry to learn of Louise's passing. I didn't know her personally but I felt like I did because she and my mother, Paula Cupp, were buddies working at the nursing home and mom spoke of her often. Cathy, my mom passed on August 2nd so I know exactly what you're feeling. I'm sure our moms had a wonderful reunion and now that Kathleen has passed...can you even imagine what their conversations must be like?! Let us pray for each other and ask our Lord to bring comfort to each other's hearts. As deeply as we miss them, we mustn't forget they suffer no more. They've been made whole once again, they're happy and free. But mostly, I hold close to my heart the promise God made to each of us that we'll be reunited in His time. My sincere sympathies to you and your family.
