    In loving memory - Mary Lou Rouse

    My Goddaughter Mary Lou died in a motorcycle accident yesterday. She was such a sweet person and I'm devastated by this.

    I've attached a picture of us together that was taken when she was about 2. She added the border and message and sent this to me for Father's Day a couple of years ago. This is in loving memory of a sweet girl and my wonderful Goddaughter, Mary Lou.

    It's not fair.

    Steve,

    I'm deeply saddened by this news. When I saw the picture and what it was for my heart sank. I hope that everyone is doing okay and coping as good as can be expected. If there is anything I can do I'll do it, just ask.

    I'm a subscriber to the idea that parents, godparents and grandparents should never outlive their children. They should be at your bedside on the last days not the other way around.

    Our prayers are with you and yours on this day of great sadness. I'll put this in at my church for our prayer concerns as well.

    I am so sorry to hear the news. Family is what we make it. You'll certainly miss her. Remember though she will live on forever in your hearts. Grief is long process and your hearts will be heavy for a while.

    Will include you and yours in our prayers.

    Steve and Family,
    I am very sorry for your loss. From the photo I can see your niece is the same age as my nieces, nothing brightens the day like a smile from a niece. Always remember those smiles. I am sure you are her hero. She will always be with you.

    I am so sorry

    Steve,

    I lost my sister more than ten years ago and while one might assume that I would have something eloquant to say, I do not.

    It sucks, it's unfair and I am terribly sorry for your loss.

    I will keep you in my thoughts.

    My best to you and yours,
