  9. Friends,
    You have my deepest sympathy.

    Please hold close Psalms 34:18, “Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted
    He saves those who are crushed in spirit.”

  10. I did not know how sick you were. I do remember you even though I did not know you that well. But, I am looking forward to seeing you again under better conditions in the new world 🌍 to come. May Jehovah God be with your family to help them endure until they are able to see you again.

  11. 🙏 🙏 Prayers to the family of Laini for strength and healing. Know that God is love!!! Til we meet again

  12. To Lou’s children:
    God has another flower for His garden. Allow Him to comfort you and remember you will meet her again
    I will not get a call on my birthday (11/19/1945) from my ‘twin’ again…but we will eventually celebrate together. Love you Lou !

  13. I miss Lou already knowing I can’t call ‘my twin’ again. There is no more pain for her now. Rest in peace in the arms of Jesus. Children, God bless you all.

  14. To be absent from the body is to be in the presence of the Lord and there is no better place to be. May God continue to comfort all in the transition of Lou Freeman. I will always remember her smile and sense of humor.
