Mike, Jacque & David; I know we haven't been close with the family for many years but we still have kept in touch with some of the family and what the family is up to. We are so sorry for your loss and please know that our thoughts are with you and the entire family at this time. Mary Lou was always kind and caring to me and my children and we will miss her.

Brianna and Nick Conlon
