smart, funny, always looking to help. A person that can be counted on and you can count on keeping your secrets. As a child - curious. As an adult - everyone's rock. As a mother - a reliable and consistent. Always "the best mom" in the neighborhood even though all the kids now the homework MUST be done first. She has more love to give than those who are willing to cherish it. She is not always right nor is she always the best at everything but you always know she gives you her best.
I wish I had a Lou Ann in my life. I wish I had a Lou Ann for a mom.
