Mary Lu was a good friend to many of us in Lenox. We shared many good times with her and Rudy. She was the kindest soul I've ever known. Knowing she is with God is a comfort to all of us who loved her.

Mary Lu and I go way back. We both moved to Lenox about the same time and Rudy was our dentist. We had this great friendship all through the years and shared many fun times. When I joined the dentist office we had a wonderful bookkeeping exchange. I once told her that we always arrived at the same location with the books, only she went around the world and I went in a straight line. We had a good laugh with that one. Will miss my old friend, but I know she is in the best place ever. Walking with Jesus!.
