Dearest Larry, Deb, Larry, and family! I’m saddened by the news of Mary Lou’s passing. She was a loving friend, and incredible human being. She may be gone from our sight, but her light burns bright. She now dwells in our hearts, she’s never far....her spirit comes in the wind, her love takes flight on butterfly wings, her song is now heard through the birds sweet melody’s! Quiet your heart, and look around, and listen....she will speak to you in many different ways! On angels wings she was carried to her heavenly home. She has found her peace, no more struggle, nor pain! Rejoice "in a life well lived” , she made a difference , we are richer because she impacted our hearts, each in her own way. Her legacy lives on, her light is eternal....look upward each night, she’s there just beyond the stars! ???? May God walk beside each one of you during this difficult time. **Ray and I offer our condolences, and send our love, and prayers to each one of you! ????
