Brent and all of Mary Lou's Family,
We are sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was truly an ambitious person. To quote the old saying, "Not much grass grew under her feet". I so enjoyed getting to know her better at the Senior Center. We shared an interest in reading, old books, and antiques. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all as you lay your dear one to rest. Love, Bart & Joyce Wiggins
