I worked on the Base and your mom often came to the office to bring up paperwork for us. She always had the biggest smile on her face and we looked forward to seeing her. She would often speak of her children, but mostly of her grandchildren, with such love. I'm sure you'll miss her. My deepest condolences to all of you.

Bonnie, Joey & families:
My condolences on the recent loss of your Mom. I have many memories of your mom, especially during the baseball tournaments at Curran Park and the many meals and BBq's! Mary Lou always made sure that her family came first, having attended many school Christmas Concerts or plays.

My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
