Gordon, Diane, Gerald, Craig and Tim....My deepest sympathies to you and your family on the passing of a wonderful lady. I hold many great memories of coming to your home on Sat. to see your mom elbow deep in flour baking her heart out. I never saw so many cakes and pies in one place! My chickens had a hard job keeping up to her demands for eggs every Thursday night when she would faithfully come and pick me up for Missionettes. It was through Missionettes and Mary Lou's witnessing that I came to really know the Lord,and for that I am eternally grateful. While her work on earth is finished, her first days in the presence of the Lord has just begun. I cannot imagine the smile on her face right now! May the Lord bring you each peace,comfort and healing at this difficult time. My thought and prayers are with you all. Cheryl Speers

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. So glad that I was talking to MaryLou last week. The day she died we had the most beautiful sunset and I'm sure she would have seen it and started planning a quilting bee around it. Love Les & Virginia

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Mary Lou. She was a wonderful woman who has helped me so much. I learned many things from her. She will be missed!

Dear Family of Mary Lou Holiday, I have been so blessed to have known your Mother over the years and no one will ever forget all the wonderful works she has done for our Lord. I'm sure you all have been blessed to have such a wonderful Christian Mother, Grandmother and Greatgrandmother. She will be missed so much from all who knew her. At this time I would like to say that I really appreciated her as she helped me through a very difficult time in my life. When Brenda (Black) Kerr was very sick and your Mother was teaching Sunday School at the Mount Forest Pentecostal Church, she and the sunday school class bought goats milk for my daughter and she became well again after been in Sick kids Hospital in Toronto as well as much nutrition was provided. I will never forget her kindness to me at that time. It's always in my heart and will be a memory forever. May God give you all the strength you need to get through this difficult time but what a wonderful promise we have in the Bible is to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. We truly know where she is today and I'm sure that will give you all peace. God Bless you all Isabel Primmer

Our thoughts and prayers are with all the family. God be with you. Your happy memories will coninue through the years to come. Alvin and Joan Eccles
