  • Larry, so sorry for your lose. My prayers are for you and your family during this time of sorrow.

  • So sorry for your loss, may her memory be eternal.

  • I m so sorry about Louise’s passing. I had the pleasure of knowing Louise for 37 years, previously as a student, and continuing now as a parent of a current student. Louise’s perpetual smile and friendship will always be appreciated and remembered. Also, as an often-panicked mother of a dancer who (over the years) misplaced many parts of her costumes, Louise’s knack of knowing what costume goes with certain accessories as well as matching tights was amazing. Her helpfulness cannot go without mentioning to the hundreds of parents that relied on her not just for weekly communictions, but for last-minute recital fixes. Most of all, her kindness and humor will always be remembered as a part of many, many students’ childhoods. Sweet dreams, Louise.

  • The laughs. The road trips. Recipes and shopping. The life lessons I will always hold with me. I owe so much to you.

    Because I knew you, I have been changed for for good.

    Always I’m my heart,

  • Im very sorry Uncle Jimmy, Larry & Paul & family. I just heard the news, I loved Louise very much. Will never forget the fun times in NH. Rest in beautiful peace Auntie. ❤
