To the staff: Just a short note to say “thank you” for taking care of Mary Lou these past years. I know at times it wasn’t easy, but she went the way she would have wanted. The funeral was just as I would have liked, and I know Mary Lou was happy with it. Again, many thanks, Geri + Denny F. and the H. Family
