I was so sad to learn of my Aunt Mary Lou's passing. She is a wonderful person, and always so kind to me. I pray that Susan, Sara, John, and all of their families be comforted by faith, and the family and friends that share our love to you all. Jim

Mary Lou and Max were our first neighbors in 1952 and Mary Lou and I have remained in touch though we were miles apart. Her friendship meant so much to me then and through the years. We shared so much together that it's difficult to begin to recount the memories. She will always be remembered as a dear friend and treasured confidant over the years. My thoughts are with all the family and especially Susan, Sara and John.

To the family may God's promises found at Acts 24:15 bring you comfort at this difficult time.
