Brad and family, I am so sorry to have her gone. She was one of the kindest, most decent person I'd met. Two of our daughters were in her Irish dance class. Tim & Julie, sorry for your loss.

My wonderful friend LuAnne is gone after a valiant fight with Alzheimers. I have missed for the past 6 years her dancing, her sense of humor, her ability to organize and her clear mind. She stays in my heart. Brad, Hannah and family, our thoughts are with you. Layne and Mila Pierce

Brad, I wanted to reach out to you and give my condolences. LuAnn was much younger than me but I enjoyed her enthusiasm in her dance, At Family gatherings when LuAnn and you would demonstrate a good old fashion polka, it was a real kick. We will be out of town during the services, so I want to offer our prayers for you and her family and ask God for blessing on her soul.

RIP LuAnne, you are now rid of the horrible disease and are now one of God's angels and can be part of his band playing your keyboard. I ask God to give Brad the strength to get thru the grief that he must have. He was such a wonderful husband so faithful with his visits to you.
