    To the family of Louise Horton: She was a wonderful christian, mother and friend whom I am going to miss all the good laughs, facial gestures and words that came out of her mouth.  As I look back over my own life, I can say I was blessed to have such a person that shaped me to be the woman I am today.  Rest Easy, Weezie and I will see you on the other side.  I bet it feels great to not have any physical ailments, you will not only have to ask once and you are surrounded by beauty.  Love you!
