Dear Sue, John, and family,
I just read today about your mother's passing and wanted to send my deepest sympathies. Your Mom was living at the same home that Ron's mom and dad are at and I saw her about a year ago and had a chat. I have such fond memories of your Mom and Dad from growing up, living next door to each other. Also I have good memories of babysitting you two, and could tell a story or two about things that you two did while I was looking after you. But I remember we always had a lot of fun and you were really good kids so I always loved to sit for your parents.
We still have the painting your Mother did for our wedding present hanging at the top of the stairs in our living room, which I felt was such a treasurer when she gave it to us. Most of our friends, when they were young, only had prints on their walls, but I had a real artist's painting and was so proud of that.
I know it is hard to lose your Mom, no matter how old we get, so I hope that all the wonderful memories you have of her will bring comfort. I know it did when I lost my parents, and even when Donna passed two years ago. Those make life so much more rewarding and rich.
I hope you are both doing well, and I am sorry I never heard about her service or I would have certainly come to see you again.
Take care and all the best to both of you and your loved ones.
Mary Lou (Robotham) Wagner.

My memories of Aunty Lou and Uncle Doug are all from my childhood. The amazing Thanksgiving table groaning with food for my hungry tummy. We had just driven for ever - which is normal in the Americas, but quite odd in England. It was better than my Mum's cooking - Margaret, Lou's Sister. No one was better than my Mum for cooking, ever! Except Aunty Lou. I remember being deeply surprised.

Another fragment in my 61 year old memory was being in Aunty Lou's basement where she was growing plants. Big florescent tubes, but with normal light bulbs as well. "Why have you got normal light bulbs as well?" And she explained that the plants grew perfectly well with the fluorescent tubes, but they never flowered without the light from normal light bulbs. I was fascinated.

A barbecue at their house overlooking the (long disappeared) field at the back and Lou and Doug's friends were so interesting. I was worried about snakes and someone explained that there were probably 10 poisonous snakes within a stones throw, but because they were more scared of us than we were of them, we just needed to be noisy and they would stay out of our way. Very comforting to someone under 10.

Aunty Lou was my Mum's big sister. And she was close and stayed close to my Mum all her life. Mum always had letters from Aunty Lou she would mention to us in passing. News from Canada as we ran through the kitchen collecting peanut butter sandwiches. But the biggest news was the quietest news.

Aunty Lou was my Mum's closest, most loving and most loved family.

Auntie Lou was very dear to our family. She was interested in us all, and when we had our own families became interested in them too. When I was about twelve she made me a lined outfit in a beautiful tartan. It was very special to me. When we were visiting her and Uncle Doug, nothing was too much trouble. Her meals were spectacular and she was very generous with her paintings. Our Anna was admiring a painting when we visited, and Auntie Lou gave it to her there and then, which Anna still treasures. Auntie Lou was a lovely lady, and we send our special love to John and Susan. From Therese (Belcourt) Walker.
