    To George and the Family members of Alouise,

    I personally will miss the hell outta Alouise! May she rest in peace with no more worries or discomfort.
    Alouise was a HOOT! I adored her and respected her immensely. I never had a problem assisting with what ever I could.
    She had many treasures and I recommend the family take the time to read her daily logs; always quite interesting. We enjoyed cookouts and talks and of course our ducks!
    A few times we would see who cut their grass first and we both would meet in the middle. She became quite disappointed when the wood pile was very small, the birds disappeared.
    We would share left overs with other when cooking and she always loved the “nummies” I would make. One time I made blueberry muffins and she didn’t tell me about her allergy until I told her I was going to make them again and then NO MORE Blueberry anything for Alouise. (Her one batch of stew was fabulous!) She loved all her flowers-OUTSIDE.
    She talked many times of her life experiences and her children and grandchildren (all decendants).
    A discussion of Hawaii would come up to go there and SHE HAD TO GO TO show us all the details. Alouise, Aloha luv!
    My sincerest condolences to each and every one of you with HUGS and a SMILE! Blessings always to each of you.
    To Shane, your Grandmother always wanted the best for you and to be safe. I wish you strength and to take power of your own life and be happy.
    She will be missed greatly!

    I was so sorry to hear about Alouise passing. I met her thru the Vfw. Alouise and I became close friends right away. We talked every day and she would always talk about her kids and grandchildren. She loved her family dearly. She could always vent her problems with me I really loved her. I feel so sad for the family and George. I know he will be lost without her. I’m just so sad that I haven’t seen her before her passing. Alouise lived a full life right up to the end so Rest In Peace my dear friend. I will miss you
