Guestbook

  1. Frankie Young

    I’ve never met anyone as kind and loving as Louise, that would go out of her way to make someone feel special. I’m not anyone that anybody knows at Victory Church, but she would always make me feel welcome and didn’t mind a bit to sit down and enjoy conversation. I have to say that this was a wonderful, beautiful child of God and a genuine down to earth Christian that , I can say, I truly loved.

  2. The.Ruiz family

    Just a lovely person inside & out.

  3. Debi Threewitts

    I have a particularly special memory of a time God used Louise in my life. It’s too special to try to explain, but I will always remember how I felt before, during, and after that interaction. I was so blessed by it. And I am thankful for all the laughter we shared through the years and how she always asked about and prayed for my family. I can hear her voice now. It makes me smile.
