    So sorry to hear about my dear friend (from the 7th grade). Had last talked to her about a month ago. She never got over Michael's untimely passing, I remember how happy and proud she was when Mike assumed command of the base in NC. Rest in peace Mary Lou.

    To one of my dear friends. We had such fun together. For the last few years we had to have a phone call friendship but that was OK too. I'll miss you. Gloria Jones

    When posted to the US Embassy in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, Mary Lou gave me a recipe for Molasses Sugar cookies that are the favorite of my children and friends. I still have her handwritten recipe card dated January 8, 1977, stained and worn but treasured nonetheless. I thought of Mary Lou every time I took out that recipe and think of her family now.
