Not sure what to say?

Mooney was my favorite Southern Lady. She always brightened any conversation with her bubbly attitude and happy disposition. My prayers to Harv and all their kids. Norm

Mary Anna grew up on Pontchartrain Boulevard and I lived in the next block. My family always enjoyed the Zatarian Christmas party where Mr Zatarian served drinks from a converted Upright piano bar. Watching Mary Anna play stock down with the other neighborhood kids was a favorite pastime for me. Fortunately, I spoke with her a few years ago and we reminisced about our childhood.

May she Rest In Peace.
