Aunt Louise was the best aunt anyone could have. She was kind, sweet, generous and very loviing. She was an excellent cook and seamstress. When I was in college and working in the summer she would invite me over for dinner when my family was at the lake. My husband and I would love to visit Uncle Bob and Aunt Louise when they lived in Geneva. She and I would go shopping at the little Traveler and then we all would go to dinner at the place they would pick. Aunt Louise would know all the best shops and restaurants in Geneva. We always felt so welcome when we visited. She and Uncle Bob are now in the arms of the Lord and will be together forever.
