So sorry to hear the passing of Louise. I did not know her, but trying to connect with someone from the family. I'm the daughter of Harry H. Long, 111 who served in the army in Europe with her husband Waters. Going through my Dad's war papers, I found a pic of Waters and would like the family to have it. My email is: [email protected] and cell: 215-880-5548. I live in the suburbs of Philly. I'm 74 and I hope to hear from someone in the family. Blessings, Linda

Louise was an inspiration to everyone. I loved her passion for life, her intellect, and interest in everyone and everything around her. She was my mother's best friend.
