our days at Temple U Dad Vail<br /> weekend <br />
Maureen and I are do saddened by the passing of this wonderful woman and mother and yes friend. I've known Louise since her days as a student at the Blur when Don , Brian and I rowed on Temple's crew team. She was such a statuesque beauty and full of grace and charm I often thanked God for the opportunity to meet her. Louise will be sorely missed and her absence will leave a hole in our hearts. Hod bless you.

Im so sorry to learn of Louises passing. I had the pleasure of meeting her in my role as a college representative. Her loveliness and professionalism were unmatched and her great fondness for Penncrests students could not be missed. I will miss her warm welcome and smiling face on my future visits to the school, but will always be grateful that I had the opportunity to meet her.

The Nelson family will always have the fondest memories of Louise ~ from Broomall's Lake Swim Club, Media Little League, all the way to helping the kids figure out their next step after Penncrest. The world was made a better place because of her.

Louise was a wonderful person who lived her faith. She was very positive and often had a smile on her face. She was willing to contribute her time and talent to so many things associated with church and also other organizations and places where she had a passion. She was a blessing to her family and friends, a good mother and wife and so proud of her children. She will be missed!

Louise was a very Special person, and I can't believe that I'm talking about her in the past tense. I will always remember the many conversations we had over the years, mostly about our Children. Louise was a very Proud mother of her Three Boys and very Proud of the Men They Became. I Pray that Don & the boys can hold onto each other and get comfort in knowing that she will always be with them.

Louise's smile, warmth, and kindness will be missed. She was one of those rare people who managed to touch those she barely knew as much as those who were fortunate enough to call her a friend. My condolences to the entire Naismith family.

Louise, the world is a lesser place without you, however it would not be fair to deprive Heaven of your smile and bubbly personality. You deserve those wings, and I can not wait to fly with you someday. I miss you and our "mini reunions".
