  8. Dear Chiara, JJ and Luca
    My sincere condolences on the death of your dear mother.
    I am so sorry to learn that she suffered the terrible disease of ALS.
    I first met your gracious and courageous mother at the birth of JJ when I was the resident doctor who delivered JJ.
    Years later, by chance she came to my clinic in Lakeview and of course I recognised her and JJ- whom I called “a walking smile” when he was a little boy. Mary Lou was very special- kind, courageous and so loving to her family. A true inspiration.
    It was my pleasure and privilege to be her Family Doctor during the 90’s.
    My thoughts are with you all at this very sad time.
    May your hearts be comforted knowing you were her treasures and that she chose her passing wisely and well.

  9. Dear Chiara and family,
    I address this message to you simply because I knew you and your Mum the best. You were one of my shining lights at Richmond School where I had the privilege of teaching third grade. I always enjoyed having you in my class and meeting your Mum and getting to know her was a bonus. She was a force of nature, always smiling and full of energy. As a parent volunteer she was just the best. You could always count on her to get the ball rolling. You were instantly attracted to her flamboyant style both in her colourful attire and her unbounded enthusiasm for anything she became involved in. I was saddened to learn she had passed away but happy to know she had done so on her own terms. Though she may be gone from this world, just know she is in a better place and she will be watching over you and all your family and guiding you as you move forward in the years ahead. God Bless all of you. I’m pleased to have known both you and your Mum. Rest in peace Mary-Lou.
    With fond memories
    and deepest sympathies
    Hazel Burns(formerly McNab)

    I met Mary Lou not long after she moved to Calgary and we had a wonderful friendship. She always made space in her life for new friends. She loved deeply and sincerely. You three were and are her greatest legacy. She was an amazing human being whose smile brightened every space she was in. She will be missed.
