To the family of Louise Ham. I was saddened to hear of Louise''''''''s passing. She was a wonderful baby sitter to my nephew when he was small. He really thought a lot of her as a person and baby sitter. She cared for the kids she kept with LOVE. She will be missed by a lot of people, especially the kids and their family that she baby sat for. She is in a better place, but that don''''''''t make it any easier. The family will be in my thoughts and Prayers. I Pray that God gives each and everyone the comfort and the strength to get through this difficult time.
