What an accomplished life Mary Lou led. I will miss our early morning conversations on the way to work at Data Recognition Corp. we always had plenty to talk about—from family matters to politics. May her family have peace and comfort during this difficult time.

I have such fond memories of Mary Lou. We played a lot together as kids when the Smith's lived in Harrison and after they moved outside of town. Great to read of all her accomplishments. Know she will be missed by her siblings, children, and grands.

Mildred and Dwight: I never know what to say to someone who has lost a family member. The loss is so final, so irreplacable and brings so many mixed emotions. In time, some people decide they can or should "get over it",others decide they shouldn't or can't get over it; Whatever you decide, you have my sympathies and please also accept my best wishes to get through it as best you can.

What a wonderful life and career! So sorry that we lived so far apart. I remember playing with Mary Lou when I was a child, and talking with her at the Gilreath reunions. Sending good thoughts and much sympathy to the family. Love Tom and Marla
