I loved Momma Lou so much. She was a special lady. She always made me feel loved. She’d always tell me what a blessing to her and God that I was. My heart is broken because of the loss. She was always smiling and happy and full of love for everyone, but especially for her Savior. Even when she wasn’t able to go to church anymore her faith and love for God never wavered. To be anything like her would truly be a blessing. I know she’s where she wants to be though and she’s happy, full of Joy, dancing and praising our one and only God

Mama Lou was a special angel here on earth. She accepted me into her family right away when I first met her and always made me feel at home. I love you Mama Lou. God Bless all her family.
