Mary Lou was a terrific person with a great laugh. She created and arranged the flowers I carried at my first wedding back in 1991. She was a super talented person who was always so friendly and would talk to just about anyone. Her smile was contagious. I know she will be missed by many, many people. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and her many friends which included my Aunt Beck & Aunt Renae.
