Mary Lou Langley was my best friend for over 30 years. She was not famous and she did not accomplish great things with one exception: Mary Lou gave love every day of her life. She made the world -- and the lives she touched -- happier and easier. Her laughter was infectious and she displayed her generosity quietly to everyone around her. She asked little of life, yet gave back the most important thing she had to give -- her heart. I will miss you, old friend.
