My Comadre, I will never forget all the weddings and other celebrations we catered together for over 10 years. We had a lot of fun, worked well together, and many time we would join in on the celebration. You, Ray and your family became part of our family, and we became part of your family, You and Ray baptized my daughter Nona. She loved you and would visit you when she was in town. You are going to be greatly missed. My condolence to your children and family. Love You, Your Comadre Sylvia Fransua

Dear Johnny and family ,

Your mother was so pleasant and nice to me from the first time I met her, as well as your father. It must have been wonderful to have them as your parent's.

Mary Lou and Ray were always the best. They were best friends with my mom and dad, Rafael and Adelina Gonzales, their uncle and aunt. I will always remember playing cards with them on the weekend. Mary Lou was my Confirmation sponsor. I will always remember them in my prayers. God Bless them always.

I have lost one of my dearest friends! Mary Lou was my neighbor for many years. Our kids grew up together and were best friends. Our families were so very close. Mary Lou was always such a happy person She was so much fun! I can just see her big smile. She, my sister in law, Shirley, and our good friend Mary Jane, had such wonderful times together and so much fun on our bowling trips. She always bowled so well. I missed her when she moved to Arizona. I know how happy she has been there. I will miss her so much! My children's and my love to all the family!! We love you!!!

A warm smile and a genuine loving demeanor, we mourn the loss of our sister-in-law and Aunt. We are comforted by the fact that she will never be truly gone, as she lives in our memories and in our hearts.

To her family, mourn her loss yes, but celebrate her life more, as each of you is a part of the wonderful legacy that she leaves behind. May God bless her and each of you.
