    So sorry to hear about Louise. She was one of my special mom’s. Mine has been in heaven for 37 years and my dad was reunited a short while back. My prayers are with you all during this hard time. Your dad has received one special Valentine present (again). Heaven is sweeter by the minute. Love; Peace and Understanding to you all.

    It was a blessing to have known Louise and to have been her friend. She was a proud member of the Rhythm Band at the Turner Center at the Y. She will be so very missed by all her fellow band members. We hope she finds the maraca section in heaven. Stay cool and keep the beat, Louise!

    Sincerest condolences to all the family.

    Rise Tucker and all the Retro Rhythms

    I lived next door to the Goodman’s for years. I also enjoyed my talks in the yard when we were both doing yard work.
    She was such a loving and caring person. God bless you all and give you comfort through this difficult time. I know she will be missed.
