Not often you meet a person like Mary Lou. Such a smart, classy, beautiful person inside and out. She taught me much in the short time we were able to spend together. She lived a fantastic life, well traveled, never met a challenge she walked away from (including a 12' obstacle wall with LSFS), always had a smile and warm hug for me and everyone else. She had a way of making everyone she encountered a better person. Thank you Mary Lou. I will miss you. May God rest your soul.
