Dear Uncle Ron, Russell, Michelle, Reg, and all your family members,
I was thinking of Aunt Louise a lot of late and then the news came of her passing. It made me so sad that I did not get to see her again and ask her about my mom and remember the times we had together over the years. I think of living side by side in Prelate and all the Christmastimes we spent with Gramma and Grandaddy Charnetski and all the family. I looked at a lot of old photos when I heard she died and found many where we dressed Reg up in funny outfits as he was the "little guy" for so many years. Auntie Louise was a spitfire to be sure. She and mom loved hard and had just as much fire in their sisterly arguments. But they are sisters and family. It brings back all the feelings of losing my mom. I think of Auntie Louise saying to me after I lost my mom, that if I ever needed to talk, I should call her. Oh how I wish I had.
I am so sorry for your loss. This might sound like it is all about me, and I know it is about all of you, but I feel a great sense of loss in her passing. I will remember her for her sense of style and always great shoes. They were never like anyone else's. Peep-toe, heels, clear glasslike high heels:) Makes me smile.
Uncle Ron, I hope you can find comfort in your memories and your family. My dad said that at first you miss them and then later on you have a deep sadness and you are lonely. He had his bridge and cribbage friends to carry him through. I hope you have some card players to help you along as well.
It would be wonderful to think that Auntie Louise has found my mom in her travels and together they can find all the family who has gone before them.
Wishing you all the comfort of your memories, take care of each other.
Kim and Bill
Michelle, So sorry for your loss. I know how close you were to your Mom. My thoughts are with you and your family at this time.
To Ron and your family. We were so very sorry to hear of the loss of Louise. She will be greatly missed. I remember our many chats and sharing about crafts, decorating and love of animals. She was a great baker and cook and I still make some of our favorites. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Evelyn Kurtz and family
Ron and family. We were so sorry to hear about your loss. Our deepest condolences.
We were saddened to hear of Louise’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Ron, and family. My dad, Ben Koch, cherished your friendship and we greatly appreciated that he had the chance to get to know you both.
