Dear Mary Lou, Jack and family,
My mother valued your mother as a good friend for so many years. I remember your mother as a warm and happy person. So glad she is now at peace.

Mary Lou, Jackie, and family.....My thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time. When your Mom/Dad moved onto Sawyer St., I remember about once a week, my mother would go to your house to share morning coffee with your Mom. It put a spark in my mother's step having that time with her. When my husband and I were married, your Mom/Dad gave us a round card table as a wedding present. We used that as our dining room table for more than one year. May she rest in peace.

Mary Lou, Jackie and family,
I am so sorry to have missed your Mothers wake and funeral. I remember many good times with you and your Mom and Dad--from way back. Know that our prayers are with you as our Moms and Dads are enjoying an old-fashioned reunion and their eternal rewards.

Mary Lou, Paul, Jack, Kevin and Karen - our sincerest sympathies. So many fond memories of Rita and the annual holiday gathering was something she and Del always did (and Mary Lou too). Lots of grand memories in the downstairs room - those memories stay forever. She was welcomed by many and is in peace - something she so deserved and heaven truly has a new angel! Love from North Carolina - Mike, Colin and Kaitlyn O'Brien

Our mom and dad were good friends with Del and Rita. I remember visiting their home and going to "talk to" James in his crib. They were such beautiful people and Mary Lou and Jacky were our ages, so we all got along. Rita will be missed. My mom and our family send our sympathy.
