    I was sad to hear of Loise’s passing. I was fortunate to know both Jim and Louise as next door neighbors. Louise was a very kind and pleasant neighbor. I hope she and Jim are happy being reunited in heaven. My condolences to her family as they go through this difficult period. Best, Bill Corcoran
