A Mother's Love For Her Children
African Stone Family

Louise Stokes is remembered as an incredible woman who was a blessing to her family. Like many of the Stone women she was the backbone of her family. She gave what is essential to life and living - love. Her family was precious to her and they valued and appreciated her presence in their lives. She was a positive influential force in her family's lives. Her son's attitudes were shaped early on by their mother's strong influence. She help keep both of her sons grounded. She was very much aware of the importance of attaining an education. She knew it was a passport to position oneself for a  better path in life. Especially, for African Americans who had been historically left out. She guided and helped channeled her sons energy into their full potential. She took an active interest in her sons and her grandchildren. As you can see profound results emerged and is continously emerging through the generations. Her unconditional loving and high energy presence enriched her sons, her grandchildren and the the lives of her family members and friends in Shaker Heights. Her grandchildren have shared many warm memories and stories of how special their grandmother made them feel. They often speak about the amazing gifted power of love she had in her hands. How like her mother and her sisters she was spiritually enriched and had the abilty to make something very special out of nothing or  something special 
out of very little. How she was a loyal and steadfast friend, confidante and helped her family with her wisdom to handle many of the life challenges they faced before her death.
