Teresa and Mary Lou,
What a blessing to have your sweet Mother for 97 years. Just the sweetest lady ever! Our love and prayers are with you and your family as you endure the coming days, and find your way without her. Losing my Mother a year ago, I rejoiced she didn’t suffer, and had 89 years with us, but her absence left an empty space in our hearts! I am sure it will be similar with you. Love and sympathy,
Cathy Currin Pruitt

Louettie Freeman was a woman who set the standards on how a wife & mother should live their lives—one that all ladies should emulate. A rock solid Christian were her standards that led to her being a role model for all. Prayers to her family–you all should be proud !! Amen.

Condolence from Holly Shannonhouse on May 4th, 2017 11:39 pm

Heaven has most certainly gained an angel with the arrival of this beautiful spirit! Though I didn’t get to know her extremely well over the years she was absolutely one of the most welcoming, calming, gentle and genuinely kind people I’ve ever had the honor of meeting – something you could immediately tell about her upon entering a room with her. I know how much this pains all of you as the love you all shared was so incredible – I am truly sorry for your loss. Mom, Ryan and myself send our deepest sympathies and hugs from afar. Lots of love to y’all!

My deepest sympathy for the loss of your wonderful, precious Mother. She lives in each of you, and the time you spent with her on earth will not compare with the time you’ll spend with her in Heaven. Praying for your peace and comfort. John 14:27
I love all of you, Cindy

I will miss her gentle smile and the twinkle in her eyes. She was and now will always be a dear soul….I will miss you!

Condolence from Harriet Crawford on May 5th, 2017 3:21 pm

I surely will miss my down the street neighbor. My prayers to all of her family.

Condolence from Sylvia Landis Kennedy on May 5th, 2017 5:02 pm

Teresa, I am so sorry about the passing of your mom. I know she will be greatly missed. I will keep you and the family in my prayers.

Condolence from Frances and Monk Jackson on May 6th, 2017 3:06 pm

I will always remember the first time I met your mom because she was so outgoing and fun. We laughed and “cut-up” the entire visit. I know you will miss her, but hopefully, her memory will make you happy again in time. Moms are so special and you have been so blessed to have such a sweet one and been able to have her for so long. May God bless you and your family. Love, Frances and Monk

Condolence from Cynthia Adcock Bryant on May 7th, 2017 7:52 am

Your have many memories to remember and cherish your lifetime. Reflect them at lonely times and you will have a smile on your family. My mom and dad always spoken kind works about your family.

Condolence from Linda Cannady Tuttle on May 7th, 2017 12:44 pm

My MamaLou was my second mother for almost all of my life. There are not enough words to describe how much she influenced my life, nor how deeply the bond we shared continued to grow over the years. I knew from a very early age that my second mother and second father, Tack, were an extraordinary gift to my life. They always took the time to nurture, encourage, love, and give all they had to share life with me and my best friend, their daughter Mary Lou. Teresa was my little sister too, as she was a part of the package deal! I lost my own mother in my early 30s, and MamaLou took on even greater importance. She was quite simply one of the kindest, gentlest, most giving Souls that I’ve ever known. I’ll miss you dearly. We’ll meet again…praise the Lord!

Condolence from Bill Powell on May 7th, 2017 7:47 pm

Mary Lou and Teresa,
Your mom was a very special lady that touched many lives during her life. You were blessed to have such loving and kind parents.
Please know you both will be in our prayers for God’s healing touch upon your hearts.
Peace be with you and your families always.
Bill & Gini Powell
