I have alot of great memories of Louise and the Igloo inn. As Sammy said she raised alot of us back in the day. A very sweet lady with a great smile. I know her soul is at rest in the Lord.

Rest in Peace my friend.
Louise "raised" a lot of us back in the late 70's and early 80's. Louise was one of the most generous and gracious people I have ever had the pleasure to know. Any of you that "partied" at the Igloo knew this as well. We had a great time back then (yee haw !!!) My wedding reception was held at the Igloo Inn and Louise was also the witness to our vows when Henry and I were married in the church. Oh I could go on and on......
Thank you Louise, we love you
Henry and Sammy Rinaldi
May you Rest in Peace
