    Please accept my sympathy to all the loving Children,Family & Friends in the painful loss of your dearly loved Mary Lu. She will be sorely missed by all who knew & loved her. May you have a measure of hope, comfort & peace in the Bible Verses that follow. Psalm34:18 “JEHOVAH IS NEAR TO THOSE THAT ARE BROKEN AT HEART AND THOSE WHO ARE CRUSHED IN SPIRIT HE SAVES.”

    Dear Mitch, Marcia, Marvin, Lora, Sylvia & families, I’m so sorry to hear of the passing of your mom and know the coming days will be difficult for all of you. Your mom was such a classy lady with a kind, loving heart. I loved spending time at your home — your mom treated all of us kids like her own. Hang on to all those wonderful memories! Thinking and praying for all of you– Pam Higgins
