We sat behind her and your Dad in church on many, many Sundays! Of course, some of you children will recall the numerous messages I sent with you regarding her euchre talents!! And I will remember the message I always received in return!! Rest in peace, Mary Lou, you always made us laugh!!

Prayers for the whole Robertson Family. I spent a lot of time at your home in my younger days. Always felt welcomed and when I returned home, Mary Lou always made a point to tell me about the family that she was so proud of. RIP Mary Lou.
