    To all the family who loved Mary Lou:

    I only met Mary Lou once when she was at the front desk of her husband, Dr. Wright. Such a cute, petite lady. But I feel like I know her through the many years of stories I heard while on the chiropractic table. 🙂 I know she was loved dearly by her family. May she rest in peace in the arms of God. Wishing you all comfort.♥

    Kim & Terry
    So sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom.
    When ever we had a storm with lots of rain your Mom would call us at work to let us know how the creek was doing. So nice of her to do that. She said that’s what neighbor’s were for. A very nice neighbor she was.
    You are in our thoughts.
