    She was a special lady, her positive attitude will continue to encourage all who knew her and her unique sense of humor will make us smile whenever we think of her, can’t wait to see her when Jehovah calls her back to life. Our thoughts and prayers will be with you until then!

    I loved how she appreciated the little things in life, like a good head of hair or the tree she watched from her window or when her sister got a good report from the doctor. Her emails encouraged me greatly as she told of childhood memories centered around family discussions about the Bible, what she learned about Jehovah from watching the tree from her window, experiences she had talking to people about our God Jehovah, the interest she took in our lives so far away and most of all her love for Jehovah and her dear family. I am so sorry for the heartbreak you all are experiencing and pray Jehovah will continue to comfort you until the day he raises her back to life. Your southern family is keeping y’all in our hearts and wishing we were there to weep with you.

    Lyle, Kipp and Kari. Sorry for your loss. Mary Lou was such a special lady and loved Jehovah so much. I have such fond memories of her and always thought of her as one of the sweetest and nicest people I had the honor to know. She will be missed and can’t wait to see her in the new order.
    Love, Todd & Dottie Hutchison and family

    The Patrick family I am so sorry for your loss, and my loss of a dear and loving friend. Mary Lou always seemed so
    up beat and we could always seem to laugh about some crazy thing when we were together or visited on the phone.
    I am looking forward to seeing her again soon , well and laughing.
    I pray for Jehovah to bring you comfort during this difficult and sad time.
    Love Shirley Buchner
