To: Johnny, Debbie and family So sorry to hear of the passing of my dear cousin Mary Lou. She will be dearly missed by family and friends but i am sure will be fondly remembered by all who knew her. The Tallerico family had such great times together visiting Grandma every year in California and at our great family reunions. Mary Lou and Dorthy were very dear to me. All but 3 of my cousins were boys so I loved visiting with the girls when we got together in the attic bedroom at Sunnyside and giggled. I was glad to visit with you after Dorthy's funeral and thought that MaryLou was as beautiful as she was when I attended your "Cinderella "wedding in 1956. I just want you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. Love, Carole
