  5. June was my precious daughter in law for 41 years. We kept our promise to her mother Lois Snodgrass to take care of her the best we could. She is with her mom and dad now and I know they are rejoicing.

    Dear Louis:
    Bill and I are praying for you and your family. God will grant you his peace that June is dancing in heaven and she is healed. We did not know her, but we know that she was an amazing woman. ????????????????????????????????❤️❤️❤️

  11. Louis, our sincere sympathy. God must be smiling with June even now. She showed her love for our Lord as well as her love for you. We pray God’s mercy, grace, and blessings as you learn to live without June by your side. Joyce and Danny Rowell.

  12. Mrs Freda, my deepest condolences on passing of your daughter in law. It’s been many years since you & I have seen each other.

  13. June, your kindness and faith will continue show us the way.

  14. We have met Louis and June for dinner almost every week, usually on Monday nights, for the last 15 years or more. We knew what June would order at every restaurant and most of the wait staff knew as well. Sweet tea. Chicken fried steak, fries, corn (in a separate bowl) and gravy on the side – unless we were at the taqueria. Then it was two cheese enchiladas, no onions, and two more to go. She never complained, and I know she was in pain so many times. Monday nights won’t be the same without her. I’ll miss her smiles, her hugs and her calling me “sugar”. She leaves such a hole in our hearts, but I know she’s free of all constraints, and she’s with her Lord. And I know I’ll see her again one day.

    Louis, I just learned of June’s death today when Rhonda mentioned it. She was a special friend when I went to church at Bosqueville. We shared a love of singing alto together in the choir and had many laughs when we didn’t have a clue as to what we were doing!! Due to my shoulder surgery and two weeks in Brazos of Waco Rehab, I kinda lost track of time and hadn’t been on FB or read the paper much. BUT, I do understand your pain and at lot of the feelings you are going through as it has been only six months since Ron passed. I still have my days (and nights) where I just have to let it all out but then go to the Lord for renewed strength to go on. I’ve not moved one thing out of his closet and don’t know when I will as it seems like he’s still here as long as they are. Ron shared something with you that you just witnessed too. He lost his first love of 42 years on Valentine’s Day. Needless to say, that was a hard day for him every year. I’m here if you need a friend to talk to.

  16. Louis,
    Praying for peace and comfort in the midst of your sorrow.
    With heartfelt sympathy ????????????
