Bonita, Leona, David, Linus, Douglas, Lois & Nancy,

My Deepest Sympathies on your loss.  My Dad (Marvin Foote) has so many wonderful memories of his Aunt Louise.  Hold onto your fond memories of the good times with Louis may they warm your hearts in the days to come.  I remember a kindly lady filled with laughter when ever we would visit.  God surely will surround her in His loving embrace as He was with her.

To My Aunt Louise,
She taught me so many things.
She taught me how to ride a bike.
She taught me to read.
She taught me how to write my name.
She taught me how to behave in school.
She taught me to say the Lord's Prayer.
She taught me Bible stories when I was a kid.
                 Love, Marvin
