    I was 6 years old when Louann and Bill and aunts and uncles and cousins came to our house for their "after wedding party", a simple but very happy occasion as I recall. Having reconnected in only the last few years via email and phone, it was immediately evident that Louann was very sweet, caring, and loving. And any time we talked, I always had to comment on how beautiful her voice was! You were such a sweet soul, Cuz. Rest in peace. Love you.
