Addie, John (dad), and Ben, My heart is broken for you all. So many memories of my childhood and young adult life have flooded my mind over the last couple days. From our trip to SC with Mona, to raiding the fridge for an awesome dip she always had. I hear her voice when I talk to Addie. I hope you all find comfort in the memories you’ll hold forever in your hearts.

Mona, John and family. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. I cannot find the right words that would express my deepest condolences to everyone in her family. Last time I remember seeing Mary Jo was outside of Target in her car. Mona, you and I were standing outside talking, as Mary Jo was slowly driving away from you because we were talking way too long. You practically had to jump in the car. She was such a character. I can only begin to imagine how much she will be missed by all her family and I am so very sorry for the sadness you are all feeling during this extremely difficult time. 💔

Dear John and family, I was so very sad to hear about Mary Jo. I am happy I was able to have a nice visit with her when I came home in Sept and some Notre Dame classmates got together. Everyone loved Mary Jo and she always made me laugh. We all knew she loved her family more than anything in this world. I am keeping you and your family in my prayers.
