Dear Sister in Christ and family, I am so very sorry for your great loss. Louie was a special dear man and my brother in Christ Jesus. I remember when he gave his testimony in church, how he loved Jesus and the conviction as he wept, his testimony truly touched my heart and so many others. Louie was a really great guy and will be dearly missed by all of us who knew and loved him. And I know he is smiling down on us as he is resting in the loving arms of our Lord, free of pain and suffering. He is home! We can all rest assured of that. I pray that God will give each of you a special measure of strength that passes all understanding as you must walk this pathway of life. But remember God is there in the valleys as well as he is there on the mountain tops. I am asking that he wraps his loving arms around each of you. Ginny Please if there is anything I can do, please please call me and tell me. May God be with each of you in a special way, love in Christ, Rita Mosher
