As lifelong Binghamton residents, Mary Lou, together with her husband Bill, treasure their relationships with family and friends developed throughout the years. We will all be comforted by memories of vacations to the shores of New Jersey, Delaware and Florida. Frequent summertime barbecues on the deck provided lots of opportunities for large gatherings for family and friends.
