Oh Mary Lou, rest in peace lady. I only had the privilege of Knowing her for a few short hours while she was in the hospital room with my mother, and even with her physical and mental state at the time, she gave me an insight and life lessons that few are privileged to receive. Your work here is complete and your rewards are many. Enjoy the splendor of heaven dear lady without pain and where your mind is free and your burdens are laid to rest.
