  1. Louise was our neighbor all of my growing up years — first as Louise Smith then as the wife of J. C. Wade. A hard-working lady. A kind heart.

  2. I got to know Annie bell and Eugene more than Louise but the whole safe family is what I would call the salt of the earth. The most beautiful people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I was a trailrider who spent many weekends out at their arena and Louise and all of them I fell in love with instantly. Louise will be missed by so many for she was the sweetest person to be around. She made me feel like a better person just by meeting her. It saddens me that she is gone but she left a very very large family behind to tell many wonderful stories of her to those yet to come. My deepest heartfelt sympathies to her family and I will remember her fondly for the rest of my days.
