Louise was so special to all of us, the matriarch of the family. She is now back with her beloved Bill. We will miss her spunk and spirit, but it will live on with us. I still display the cross she gave me at her 90th birthday celebration in Conroe. Our prayers go out to her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

I am so very sorry for your loss! Mary Louise was a very special lady! Her stories about her kids and late husband were always so special ! She would say, "I don't know why God keeps me here, I want to go see Bill !" She sure loved that man !!! gosh, I will miss her !!!!
