    So very sorry for your loss.  I'm a resident at Bickford.  I remember Louise sitting by the fireplace to keep warm.  She was a beautiful lady.

    Lou was a member of the Southside Ladies Bowling League and was an excellent bowler. Phil would come to the bowling alley to critique Lou's bowling and just to visit. What a lovely couple. It was such a joy to bowl on a team with Lou , we have missed her the past couple of years. Lou was our inspiration and has never been the same without her.
