Precious friends of Mary Lou, You were so dearly loved. Mary Lou also knew your love and always said how blessed she was with friendship. We are all deeply affected that she is gone from us now but we can have peace in the knowledge that Mary Lou is living with the Lord and free of pain and sorrow. Thank you for every sweet moment spent with her and every kindness given. She will never leave our hearts. The "voice of the turtle dove" will sing again. Blessings to all of you, Debra Debra Houts

I am so sorry to hear this news. It makes me so sad. You will be truly missed MaryLou! Marybeth

My heart aches hearing about the loss of this remarkable woman. Mary Lou was an extremely intelligent woman. After the loss of her husband, a man she loved so dearly, she marched forward in her life. She loved Christmas and decorating. She loved her dear friends. She also loved her dogs unconditionally as they loved her. I feel so Blessed to have spent many weekends with her teaching me to paint. We watched B/W movies, and always had a great meal. This beautiful soul had to overcome so much in her later years, but she persevered. I love you Mary Lou, you will be missed. Mary Ginotti
