So sorry to lose such a kind classmate. My memories go way back to when we were just kids growing up in the same neighborhood. I will always remember going to her house for a party. Martha was such a fixture at our class gatherings that she will be sorely missed.

I'm so sorry to hear about Louise's passing. I have so many fond memories of her. When I was younger and would visit grandma Wilson, she would always take the time to come over and visit. I remember she took me to the fair and to the drive-in. We had fun playing cards and spending time with cousins and aunts and uncles at camp Bluebird and later at the cabin. Louise was such a sweet person and I'm thankful that she always made the effort to spend time with me and my brothers and sisters. My thoughts and prayers are with Cindy Lou and Tim.

Louise was a beautiful, giving person. I admire, so deeply, the care she gave our Grandmother. For many years, Louise styled our Grandmother's hair. I watched Louise as she worked, caring, giving her best, so precise, all without expecting anything in return. Louise was so family oriented. She was so good to attend family gatherings. Louise had the most wonderful smile and laughter. Her laughter alone, made me laugh. This world lost a perfect angel.

I’m so saddened about Louise; she & I are the same age and always had fun together, especially as teenagers. Living on the East Coast, I’ve not had the opportunity to see her often in the past few years but I would always think of her on her birthday. My two children remember her as being sweet, fun, and kind. My sympathy goes out to Cindy and her family and to Tim in their sorrow.

I was shocked to learn of Martha's passing today at the CBA. We enjoyed her hairdressing techniques for years and years. She was always professional and precise in everything she did. A very nice person.
