I was so sorry to hear about Mary Lou. I will always have the fondest memories of her during our years in the chief ranks. A wonderful lady, and a joy to be around. Many great times at dinners, and who could forget all of Cathy’s birthdays!!!! Take solace in this most difficult of times that many people care about you and your family, and they are keeping you in their thoughts and prayers.

MaryLou was my Best Friend Forever. We met through letters while our then fiancé s were in USAF basic training in 1953. We visited, corresponded through letters and phone calls. And made several beautiful trips overseas together. She was a joy to know. Her sense of humor was over the top. She adored her children and grandchildren. Her Faith kept her going throughout many trials on this earth. Even though we all know our lives on earth are planned by God, it is so sad to lose such a Dear and Beloved friend. May God continue to be with her husband Jack and the rest of her family in this journey. We love and miss you tremendously. Until we meet again MaryLou, I love you always. Great memories. ✝❤️😪
