Not sure what to say?

Dearest Auntie Ree! You made our lives so very special by being a big part!! Thank you for those wonderful memories!! You made a very special difference in my life. Wish I had told you that more often!❤❤

Mary Louise was such a beautiful, caring, sweet person. She never complained of her many health issues. I always saw her incredible smile. I stopped and visited with her the Sunday before she passed away telling her how wonderful it was to see her in church. For several years when I first joined St. Johns several of us would go to lunch following church. I loved spending the extra time with the group of friends. Her faith was amazing! She will truly be missed.

Mary Lou was a special friend. We shared many good times together: house tours, concerts, dinners at Red Lobster, etc. etc. over a period of 28 years. She was kind, forgiving, and fun loving. Loved a good book and enjoyed being read to when she began losing her sight. Listening to music was high on her list and she enjoyed it to the end. Her family a big part of her happiness and she mentioned them frequently with pride and joy. I miss those nightly phone calls from her but she is...

May the God of all comfort sustain your family during the days ahead Psalms 119:76
