Dear Hank, Ed, and all of Louise's family, Louise was a gift to our parsonage family during our three years on Country Club Road. From the spider lilies of fall to the daffodils and paper whites of spring, her passion for the outdoors and her delight in sharing it was just wonderful for our young girls. Her hospitality to us and our visiting friends and her passion for a great laugh will live long in our hearts! She lives BIG in our memories of fun and kind people!
With love,
The Stinson family (1998-2001)

Dear family,
We will always cherish
our memories of living
in the parsonage next to
Ms. Louise.
When our house burned on
Christmas Day in 1983, she called from Florida
and told the church members to "house" us in
her house until we found
a place to live. We stayed there 2 nights and
will never forget her
kindness to us.

We loved on neighbors and had great times with Hand and Louise during our time in Eufaula. We still miss them and talk about those times often.

Anne and I thought of "Miss Louise" as a real southern lady and intellectual. She was our favorite Sunday School teacher at First Baptist Church of Eufaula.All of our family loved your parents too.
Our thoughts and sincere prayers are with Hank,Ed and all the family.
