Bob, Dan and Family -- I'm sorry to hear of your loss. I know that she is in a better place, but I also know it's just never okay when your Mom is gone. You and all your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I will always remember my Aunt Lou best when she, my Uncle Bob & cousins Bob, Dan, Suzanne & John would come to visit our grandmother & grandfather in Pittsburgh Swissvale. We would wait for them to arrive & when they did, Aunt Lou would chase us my brother & me to give us a hello kiss. I always acted like I didn't want her to catch me but I think I enjoyed her "game" of finally catching me. I will miss my Aunt Lou but know that she is now in a better place.

I had the pleasure of meeting both Mary Lou and Bob briefly last spring. It was with sadness that I read of Mary Lou's passing. She was a delightful woman full of energy and determination. I was always smiling when I left their home after a visit. May her memory be eternal. Stacy Mitalas, PT.
