  • To Tom and entire Meehan family,

    Sending heartfelt condolences for your loss. Mary Lou made such an impression on me, so kind and gracious and loving. I still smile when I reflect on my first visit with her five years ago. She had a pro football game on and we watched some together and talked football. Never in a million years would I guess I could bond with an 85 year old woman over football!! She also let me know how much she adored her sons and their families. I am blessed for having met her. I pray for her eternal life and for your peace and joy in reflecting on a life well lived.

  • Tom and I are sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. Please find comfort that you have wonderful thoughts and memories to hold her close to your heart forever. Sincerely, Tom and Jennifer
