   Mary Louise lived an active life enjoying traveling with Pat, gardening, golf, and bridge. She adored her family and enjoyed her friends at The Cedars and will be greatly missed.

This day is remembered and quietly kept,

No words are needed. We shall never forget.

Those we love don’t go away,

They walk beside us every day.

Unseen, unchanged, but always near.

So loved, so missed, so very dear.

Though we miss since you’ve been gone,

We know that in Heaven your spirit shines on.
