Mrs. Gabel, as I knew her, was one of my favorite teachers at Claremont Elementary School long long ago. She was a warm and wonderful person with an extraordinary dedication to the education and well being of children. Perhaps it is not surprising that she chose to selflessly continue the same work as a volunteer long after most people are fully retired. Her life should be an inspiration to everyone.

What an incredible role-model Louise has been to our community -- young and old! I met her over 30 years ago when I worked at Glen Carlyn, and then we commiserated over the years about politics. Soul-mates, as well as with Richard. Louise had determination to give those wonderful kids in Arlington the academic and compassionate skills needed to be a loving and contributing member of our society.I cherish her smile - those eyes light up!!

She volunteered countless hours of her time and wisdom to our students and teachers. Her tireless effort is greatly appreciated by the entire Carlin Springs community. She will be greatly missed.
