    Dear MaryLou, Greg and family, We share in your sadness and our thoughts and prayers are with you. We’ll always remember your Sunday morning get togethers at your Mom and Dad’s with your families, the boys coming over to label and pick out their pumpkins the affection your parents had for our dog when she wandered over to their home and the smiles they always had for us. Enjoy your memories. You certainly were blessed with wonderful parents as role models for the generations to follow. Love, Dick and Sue
