I was blessed when I moved to Canes Crossing. Louise and Lisa came over the day I was moving in and brought me a cake and flowers. From there our friendship grew, we had so many special days together, going to miss her, she has gone home and I know she is with the Lord.

To know her was to love her, and she was greatly loved! Over the last 2 years I have heard and shared many laughs and stories with her, it was an honor and something I will truly miss.
