  7. The family has my deepest sympathy for your loss of such a beautiful lady. Angie and her seemed like they were more like twins that were connected at the hip. Always together and both dressed beautiful also.
    Your family will sure miss her and I remember Her bringing Alex to my Moms and giving him the nutcrackers because he loved them so much. I am sure my Mom was there waiting for her to join her as another Angel in heaven.

  8. My wife and I wanted to say how sorry we were to hear about Mary Lou’s passing. She was a wonderful Mom, sister, spouse and friend. She and Bob were a great couple with a kind and generous son. Mary Lou will be sorely missed by many but forever in our hearts. Jim and Diane DeMark
