    Wish I had gotten to know your mom after hearing about her life. She had courage! Moving to Florida, going to College to become a nurse. You and Dallas have the memory of a wonderful mother. Please let me know if I can do anything for your family.

    I have so many good memories of my aunt Mary Lou. My parents were close to her and David and we spent alot of time at each other homes. I was sad when she and the boys moved to Florida. May she rest in peace.

  • Betsy Harford says:

    It’s been many many years since I have seen my Aunt, or cousins, even though we lived minutes apart. My memories go way back to Uncle David, Aunt MaryLou, and the 2 boys.So I never got to know her much past that. I am sorry for the Families loss and I wish you loving happy memories.
