  • So sorry to hear about Louise. She was a very special person. She is in a better place having lunch with my momma with Merle and my Dad.

  • My prayers go out to the family, Louise was always a special aunt. But she is now rejoicing and in heaven with her brother, (my dad) Don Coleman. And my sweet uncle Merle was waiting at the gates for her.

  • Sorry to hear of Louise’s passing. I have so many fond memories of being in the Stepp household growing up. I was blessed when the family moved from the “big city” to the country. It has been a lifetime of friendship. Thoughts and prayers to the Family.
