    Gina and Carol, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother and my special Friend. I am so sorry I did not follow through with the nudging I had to try to connect with Lou a week or so ago.
    May God comfort you and your family in the difficult days ahead. I will keep you in my prayers. Please update me with how you two girls are doing.
    Your Friend in Christ, and your former elementary Librarian. Robbie Pafford

    Dear Gina and Carol,

    I am deeply saddened by your loss. I started taking piano lessons with your mother at 4 years old and took them once a week until I graduated high school. She was more than just a piano teacher. She was a beloved friend who helped teach me discipline, kindness and patience. She was always thinking of others and living an example of the love Christ. My life was changed because of my friendship with her. When I had difficult patches and struggles in life, she was a tender-hearted, compassionate listener. She often encouraged me and helped me focus on music to pull me out of tough times. I was in high school when she had a stroke, but after her recovery we still continued our lessons. She did not give up helping me. Even when it was difficult for her and some of the more challenging music was not as easy as it once had been for her, she would have me play and point out where I needed to focus. I was so impressed that she was willing to not let a stroke keep her down. That expression of endurance continued to impress upon me that she really did have the heart of a wonderful teacher. Most all the piano music that I have has her hand-written notes, and I will always cherish them because they are reminders to me of all our times together. I loved her very much and I am happy she is in her heavenly home where I hope to see her again someday.
