    Dear Denise, Gerry and Bruce, sincere condolences to you and your families on the loss of your mom. We have very fond memories of our visits with all of you in years past. I spoke with my dad this week and he was very sad to hear of Mary Lou’s passing. You are in our thoughts and prayers and you know my mother was waiting for her with open arms! Imagine the conversation those two had! Love to you all, the Laslo family.
