Lou Ann meant so much to me. I loved visiting her, and she’d let me seee all the treasures in her home. Lou Ann had a calmness about her that could only be understood if you knew her. She and Willie were kind, and compassionate people. I’m so thankful and blessed to have known them. I’m sad she’s no longer on this earth, she’s now with the Lord and her sweetheart. So sorry for your loss, Lynn and family. Kristen Cotton
