My dearest friend, Mary Lou❤️I knew when I moved to Florida & we said our tearful goodbyes that we would never see each other again. But we spoke regularly.I will always remember our trips to Perkins. I’d have to drag you out of the house but you always felt better once you were out. We had many a great conversation and laughs. I’m so sorry I’m not able to do your hair for your send off. Know that I love you to bits and will think of you often. You are one of the kindest people I’ve had the honor of knowing. Fly hi my dear!! My deepest condolences
To you Ann and your family my deepest condolences ❤️❤️

Dear Ann
Your beautiful Mom looks exactly as I remember her. Such a good lady. She and my Mom were soulmates, conducting those late-night, marathon phone calls. I loved them for it. She is for sure in Heaven for sure
