My earliest recollection of Lou is of the day she saved my life. I had snuck into Uncle Adam's vineyard next to Lou's house to filch a bunch of grapes. What I didn't realize was that Adam had guard geese. With a great bunch of grapes held over my head, I found myself running through the vineyard screaming and trying to get to the gate with 5 large geese nipping at my butt. My HERO, Mary Lou came out of the house and saved me from being pecked to death.

Mary Lou has remained my hero since then, My most heartfelt wishes and prayers to Jim, Sean and Allison in this sad time. I know that Lou is with her family that transitioned before including my Mom, Emily, her favorite Aunt.

Mom, as I said many times before to you, God doesn't necessarily listen to me but even God knows better than not to listen to you. Tell him to grant Mary Lou and her family the peace that they richly deserve.
