    Lynda and I were so very sorry to learn of Marylou's tragic passing. She was a good friend for all of the years we knew her at Miller's before we moved to VA in 2021. We send our thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathy to her family and to all of her friends and customers. She was always so good to our Mother. I know she will be greatly missed. Alton and Lynda Connor
