Everything we ever did was a memory! If I posted them all I’d write a novel. If only we could keep making memories. Love you my beautiful, Angel! ♥️🙏🏼

Mary Lou was one of the most amazing women I’ve ever met. When we joined the Chino D.E.S. Band she was one of the many people who welcomed us with open arms. Beyond that she shared so much of her heart, so much of her love for Portuguese culture. One of my favorite memories is the afternoon she guided me through her Christmas village. Afterwards we sat in her dining room, she fed me wonderful food and she shared a bit of her life story and maybe a little bit of gossip...

At every band function, she made sure we felt welcomed and really part of the group - we had two very special New Years Eves at the hall at her table. We will never forget her kindness and her love. Obrigada to your family for always sharing her so generously- she was a woman who really made a difference.
