I am Walt and Laura Logers granddaughter. I remember Louise’s energy when she and my aunt Edith were just out of high school and starting to prepare for their careers. I think Louise was going to nurses training.. We all used to gather at Aunt Tadie’s house. I was about 8 or 9 and I remember she was so beautiful. I last visited her in her home when Raymond was ill. I plan to see her again in heaven along with our loved ones . May God bless your family with his special grace at this difficult time. Bev Bremer, Le Mars, IA.
