When my sister, and I, think of Mary Lou it brings the two of us back to when we were little girls. It was always a treat going to Uncle Dick's and Aunt Alma's house. We lived in Cochran so a trip to Macon was an adventure for us. Mary Lou always greeted us with so much warmth and love. The two things that live in our hearts the most about Mary Lou are, she LOVED with all of her heart and she was a PROTECTOR. She always protected those she loved. . . . . . .

As children we played together, laughed together and cried together. So many wonderful memories. As our families grew we lost touch but I will always remember and love you, my dear cousin. God bless your dear children and grandchildren.
