My condolences to the family. Louise helped me get off to a great start with my newborn twins, Tim and Todd Kirkes. She was with me for a week, and so much appreciated. We would get "everything " done, and put them down for a nap. and then sit and talk and wait for them to wake up again. Such a fun memory. Of course.. I didn't sit much after she left. I'm sorry we had not stayed in contact. She was a good women, and again I am sorry for your loss. Nancy Kirkes
