  • I knew Louise from Faith Lutheran Church, she knew my grandparents Beverly and Roy Gall mainly, we didn’t really ever talk but she always had a smile to give to everybody and anybody. Always a very positive energy around the church and she will be missed very much. Xoxo - Posted by: Alana Hatcher (Beverly & Roy Gall’s granddaughter ) on: Jan 23, 2020
