Frances Ann, I wish that I could be with you today to give you a hug. Just know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Mary Lou was certainly a child of God and had a great influence on many people. She preached her own funeral sermon in the way she lived daily. With sympathy and caring to her family.

To Frances - What a loving and precious sister you were to Mary Lou especially in these last days. You showed the love of Christ in the way you looked after her.

Mary Lou is with her Savior and in His everlasting arms. I thank God that our paths crossed on this earth - what an example of Christ she was. I also thank God that as a sister in Christ, I don't have to say, "goodbye" to Mary Lou - I can say, "See you later." May the comfort of the Holy Spirit surround her family and friends. In His love, Sharon Castelluccio
