I was saddened to learn of Mary Lou's death in the Asheville Citizen-Times. My father was Will Hedden, son of Ransom & Mary Miranda Hicks Hedden, and first cousin to Mary Lou. I remember going to visit with my father, Will, and mother, Opal Hedden, and with Mother a few times after my father's death. Mary Lou was a kind, gracious lady, the last of a great generation. My sincere condolences to all of the family. I am sorry that we were never close enough to know each other as cousins, but I hope you find peace in your memories of Mary Lou.
