"Lou left a lasting impression on my life and on the lives of so many at Batavia Covenant Church. I taught alongside Lou and watched the light of Jesus shine through her and on those little children gathered around her. Thank you, Lou, for sharing your love for God with us and for being such an inspiration. With heartfelt sympathy, Marcy"
