I was good friends with Mary Lou when we worked at Motorists Mutual. I am sorry to say, we lost touch and I didn’t know she had married. But Jim, I just know you were a shining light in her world. She was a wonderful woman and quite funny many times. You and your family have our sincere condolences.

Oh, how I am going to miss this fine woman. Mary Lou was all that a pastor could hope for in a member, always encouraging, always positive, and always kind. She loved Jesus in a way that made others want to love him too. One of the best things Mary Lou gave me was the opportunity to know Jim, and together he and I will cherish her memory and look forward to seeing her again.

Prayers and condolences for Mary Lou's beloved Jim and family. I never knew Mary Lou; however met her once when she stopped to visit with her and my friend Joanne. I know she was loved and heard many kind things about her from her cousins Teresa and Robert. May God comfort her family now and in the many days ahead.
