There are a few things that come to mind when I think of my Aunt Mary Lou. First, who can forget her famous pistachio cake!!! It was a staple at all our family parties. However, more importantly was her kind and gentle soul. I don’t think I ever heard her raise her voice or say a mean thing. She truly exemplified kindness. You will be missed Aunt Mary Lou!

Rich and children,

So sorry to hear about Mary Lou. Although we saw her only infrequently over the years, it was always a joy to encounter her kind and warm personality.

Our memories of her will always remain very fond.
