  1. My heart is filled with memories of a beautiful smile and tender heart that supported you, the Breeze family, and Hiram Johnson softball. She always treated us as her own and her laughter brightened my day. May your heart be filled with love and great memories as we celebrate her amazing life :heart:!

  2. I can't wait to sit along side MaryLou again and watch the SF Giants play ball. She was so fun to watch the games with. She was by far the most entertaining commentator and I will never forget her reaction to great plays…"oooooh go, go, go!" I am so thankful to have met such a loving, caring and genuine soul. Can't wait to see Grandma Lou's smiling face again. Xoxo!
