Louise Mellette VanPraagh
My daughter Ally and I visited often with Miss Louise at Agape. She always had a special hug for Ally. We will miss her tremendously.
The obituary is beautifully written. My three children and I would visit Mrs. VanPraagh at her home in Gastonia. She was so kind to allow them to feed her fish. They would beg me to go for a visit. Most 2 & 4 year olds would rather go to a park, mine wanted to go visit Mrs. VanPraagh. They loved going to her home and still ask about her, especially when we pass her house. We will continue to miss her.
I am a Hospice volunteer at Agape Assisted Living and would see Louise each week as I walked back to the wing where my patients lived. She was always so pleasant and I looked forward to seeing her. I was shocked to learn that she had had a stroke. I did see her this past Tuesday in the wing next to the one I visit and it broke my heart to see her unresponsive. I was not surprised to read in the paper that she had died on Tuesday. Though you will miss her very much, you must feel that it was a blessing that she did not have to linger in that condition. I will keep you in my prayers.

What a precious friend....always such a bright spot in my life when I walked up the street to visit. I miss her & still feel that she's watching from that kitchen window when I walk by. Love & prayers to the family.
