Dear Sue and Mary Lou's family,
So sorry for your loss. My parents were friends with John and Mary Lou at the Halfmoon Fire House. I know they truly enjoyed the memories they had there. I remember, as a kid, John and Mary Lou being very fun people to be around. May they all rest in peace together. Sincerely, Chris (Watrobski) Bemis

Mary Lou was such a sweet lady. I knew her from her many years with the Halfmoon Waterford Fire Dept. She will be dearly missed. Her smile was contagious.

Aunt Mary Lou has always been a friend as much as wonderful Godmother! Her kindness always came through with her words when needed. It was a privilege to have her influence in my life. I will miss her as much as my Uncle Jack.
Love to all her Family and Friends.
