  1. Uncle Sonny, Teresa & family, I am so so sorry for your loss of Louise. There are no words that I can say at this difficult time but to let you know that I love you all and that I am keeping all of you in my prayers. I so wish that I was able to be there, but I cannot. She was a wonderful Wife, Mother and Grandmother. I pray for God’s peace, comfort and healing to surround you all. Much love, Sherry Harris
