We are sending all our love. Her laugh was one of the best I’ve ever heard. Now I can imagine it filling the sky when Aunt Mary Lou stops by the Fedyski table for a round of hugs and a good game of Bingo.

Rich and I are both so sorry for your loss. Rich has fond memories of camping with her n her husband, with his grandparents, Ed n Gertie Donawitz. I, sadly, have never met her but understand how important grandparents are in our lives. I hope soon you can be happy knowing that she is with the Lord.
