Petree, Mary Louise's Guestbook

God bless you during this difficult time. Mary Louise and her mother were often the topic of happy stories in our home. Norma and Earl were dear cousins and welcomed often in our home as we were in theirs. I often smile remembering them and adventures they shared. Please know that Mary Louise and your family have made the world a happier place in the time they were given. May your memories sustain you during these days. My love and prayer for you. Ruth Ann
