One of the nicest ladies around! We loved Mrs. Ouillette! After our first house burned to the ground- this fine lady gave us her dining room table. We celebrated a lot of family holidays around that table and always gave thanks for The Ouillette’s for their generous hearts. She will be missed. Until we meet again- may God hold you in the palm of His Hand.
Love, The Judkins family
