Dear Family,
I am sorry for your loss! Mary Lou and I shared time as children and teens. Living just a street apart, we walked daily to elementary school and then to high school. We were very close friends. In later life, we did not have the opportunity to share time. But we were always in touch at Christmas and a few times other. I called her “Lou” and she called me “Rosie.” So many years have passed! But memories remain in my heart. God Bless all of you who are her family. And, may Mary Lou rest in our Lord’s peaceful presence.
