What a great honor it has been to stand alongside such a beautiful spirit. Momma Louise touched everyone who crossed her path. I want to thank her family for allowing my husband and I and other ministry friends the opportunity to visit with her, to pray with her and to tell her how much she was loved by us and so many from the Northend. My heart will ache for her, but my spirit knows she is with her dear husband who she missed every day. Her daughter and granddaughter and all those who passed before her. We are praying for peace and comfort for each of you. Regina and Pete Dill
