Ms. Louise was such a very dear friend of my Ma Ma''''s. I often kidded them that it was because they had the same names. She was the friendly smile that always greeted the children whenever we entered Vidalia First Baptist Church. She was the sweet sweet spirit and drive behind WMU for so many years, and loved it with all her heart. Those who missed knowing Ms. Louise when she was in her prime did not know of her extreme love for her church, her God, and her friends. We will miss you Ms. Louise, but know that God has a seat in Heaven waiting on your arrival.

I was the Director at Summers Landing for about a year and a half and Ms Gibson was like a family member and she will be dearly missed. Heaven has a wonderful singing angel now. Jack and Paula, you all are in my prayers.

Jack and Brenda, You know your mother was a second mother to me. Without her and
your father,s guidance, I don''t know where I would be today. They taught me how to work
and how to accept resposibility. Mrs Gibson was one of the sweetest persons I have ever known.
I will never forget the good times we had working together at Jack''s Drive In. There
just is no telling how many Bar-B-Q and Club sandwiches we pushed out that little carhop
window, not to mention the french fries. As I write this, I know Mrs. Gibson is in Heaven.

God Bless you both and all your families.
