Lou and I were cousins and she was a dear friend. We lived next to one another for a time and shared some memorable times growing up; most were so funny, even today as Lou is thought of. I could never dance much but she tried to teach how to shag using a broom. She met a wonderful man, Jimmy, who became a great friend of us all. Time and distance separated us physically but you were and remain today in our hearts. Claim your reward God has in store for being you and look for us, for by God's grace we will be there too. Jimmy, I pray for a comforting peace to come on you and the family.

Lou was my cousin and I will always cherish the times we spent at Bonneau Beach Shagging together. She was a sweet person and always treated everyone with warm friendship when she met them. We did not talk for about for about 50 years, but whey I finally found her on facebook about 10 years ago, she and I talked for over an hour. I know she was loved by her family and my memories of her will always be loved by me. Rest in peace Lou and I will see you up there.

Lou took care of our children in her home when they were babies. She treated each child with such tender loving care, as though they were her own. She was the answer to our prayers. We will never forget her. Our sympathies to Jimmy, Cammie and Jimmy Jr. and their families. Andy and Donna Charnstrom

Susan and I have a lot of wonderful memories of Lou. One of the best memories is when she sang at our church. She loved to sing and it showed. She put her heart into it. One of the most loving ladies we ever knew. Rest in peace, friend. - Jim and Susan Burns
