Ms Louise was my moms BEST friend at Lifecare of Collegedale. She adopted me and my husband,
She always called Patrick her son. My mom died in June 14, 2020 and we planned to come visit Ms Louise.
It sadden our hearts to find out she got her wings. She was a beautiful person inside and out. She made my
visit at the nursing home enjoyable. I'm sure she will be missed. Sending prayers to her Family

Ms. Louise was my mother's best friend, Estella George; they worked together at the human services for some years. They talked several times a day. She will be truly missed by my mother and her kids. Ms. Louise was very kind, always willing to help. She often cooked cakes for us and was truly a good friend to all of us. Sending prayers to the family.
