Aunt Lulu was so special to me. When mom, my sister and I moved here from Ohio, she welcomed us with open arms and always treated us so special. She and mom were like sisters and we all loved her so dearly. We have many wonderful mmemories we will cherish with her. Our love, thoughts, and prayers are with you, Denise, Tony, David and all of the grandchildren and great grandchildren.

My thoughts and prayers go to the family and friends. While I did not know Mrs. Madafrri I work with her son Tony. He is a fine person and speaks fondly of his mother often.

Lou was always very kind to me when she surely did not have to be. She always made me feel welcome. My thoughts and prayers are with Denise, Tony, and David and all the grandchildren and great grandchildren of this special lady as they go through this difficult time. May each memory bring them joy. May God grant them a peace that surpasses understanding.
