    My sweet Louise ❤️
    You was truly an angel on earth. I spent many summers with you helping with the babies and children at the daycare. You took such good care of me as a child too. I always felt safe with you. You treated me as I was your own. Thank you for all the sweet memories and love you gave to so many 💗
    Those moments with you gave me the love to work with children. I now work at a preschool as a 3 year old teacher. I treat them all like they are my own. Just as you did with me. Thank you for all the love ❤️
    You will truly be missed in this world but your love will be passed on by so many lives you touched.
    To the family. I’m so sorry for your loss. I pray for peace and comfort during this time.

    With love ❤️
    Karen Brown /Taylor
