    Lou was a truly remarkable woman and a great friend. I will forever miss our great talks about life, love, the good books we read, and how we found humor in the little things. Your friendship was a blessing to me and your memory will be something I will always treasure.

    Aunt Lou will be missed. Although we didn’t see her often, it was always fun to for the Allison’s from Terrell to meet her halfway to Whiteoak for lunch and get caught up on news. Love you Cousins.

    I didn’t know Mrs. Spencer, but always enjoyed the anecdotes about her and her life that Suzanne shared with me. It sounds like she was a wise, warm and loving woman and the world is a little colder without her.

    Deepest sympathies to all of you that loved her and lost her. You are in my thoughts today as you say goodbye.
