    She will be missed but in such a better place and no pain. Remember as a child going to Aunt Louse and Uncle Marks house for time together. At Easter she would make tiny eggs out of a jello mold and we always colored eggs. Anita and Kenny would hunt eggs with me. Such good cousin and brother. Heaven is happy to see her. Love you Aunt Louise. Delbert and Helen
