My memories of beloved Mary Lou are many from he School of Business at Duquesne University. Mary Lou was the first person who provided assistance to me in my new career at Duquesne under Dr. Thomas Pollack. I will never forget her kind and loving ways but most of all the lasting friendships we built over the years. I express deepest sympathy to all of the Grasser family and offer gratitude for knowing such a great person and a wonderful family. May you rest in the eternal peace of God forever. Jeanie Zadrozny and Stephen Doby
