South San Francisco, CA  April 15, 2022

Mary Lou and Dick Fall left this world within a week of each other, always to be together.


If ever I would leave you

How could it be in springtime

Knowing how in spring I’m bewitched by you so?

Oh, no! Not in springtime

Summer, winter or fall!

No, never could I leave you at all!


Their love was so strong always hand in hand.
