    Was informed of Louise’s homegoing to heaven by Missy. Louise was one of the kindest people I have known. She always saw the bright side of a situation and had a contagious smile. She and mom were such great friends and now they are reuniting in heaven-to catch-up. How I remember times spent at Trinity Lutheran Church: services, picnics, retreats-it was a place in which the foundation of my faith was first experienced as I first experienced the love of God through faith in Christ Jesus. Louise was a big part of many fond memories. She often had very little but always had a way of making it stretch with enough left over to give to others. Heather, Missy, and Frank, and your family are all in my prayers! Paul Lesher
