Dear Stacey, I’m thinking of you and your family at this difficult time on the loss of your mother. I’m praying for you and your family..

Delores Metzger on Mar 25, 2020

Steven & Jennifer & family, Stacy and all of our very special cousins.
We always appreciated and loved Mary Lou. I think of the times I was going thru the clinic and we would come to your home for a delicious meal or go out to eat and find out if I could handle eating out as a diabetic. Once I moved to Lester I was privileged to see you more often especially when your Grandmother and Mother was in failing health. We will miss her but we are thankful she could go to a better home. She was a good example enduring her cross for so many years.
Our prayers and sympathy are with all of you although we can not be with you.
Paul & Delores Metzger
