The call came yesterday as I was hitting the post button for the last Blog. I had hit post and felt a wave go over me, a feeling of being lifted and light and then it was gone. Mark's mother, Louise, passed gently. A life well lived she was a wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She taught music in private schools, was the Church choir director and played piano, organ, violin and guitar.
She taught piano lessons in her home until she was 81.
The last several years as she declined and her short term memory began to walk away we learn to deal with the many repeated conversations.
Louise was also an avid hiker, backpacker, and camper.A person who loved the out doors and was most happy in the woods.
Louise was the family baker her cookies, cakes and sweet breads were all family favorites.
We have stories to tell and memories to hand down.
Louise -May 1926-Febuaury2012 it was a good life.
