She called me three days later and was not happy with me cos I couldn’t visit her. I promised to go and see her just last week but still couldn’t make it. Just yesterday evening I was thinking about how to call her and explain myself. Only for me to hear the bad news that Louisa Nelson is no more.

I still can’t believe Louisa is no more. Such a loving and hardworking woman. UK/Ireland branch of the NDC has lost a great person. May your gentle soul rest in peace, my senior sister.
