Dear Charlie, Christopher & Nicole and Houlihan Family, My heart is so sad for your loss. Mary Jo truly loved her family. Everytime she shared a story about her family she would light up! Roger and I are deeply sorry for your loss. You have another very special angel to guide you. Love, Sheila (Salvati) and Roger Wantiez
