Mary Lou, was a dear friend and mother. I never saw her cross. Always happy to see you, well read and opinionated, all in a good sense. She could hold a conversation about anything, and a great sense of humor. Like I told Cathy, I remember summer evenings, cherry pies, Thanksgiving Dinners. Lady drinking beer and barking, Mary Lou laughing...Thanks, Mary Lou for some wonderful times in my life back then, I love you.
