  1. If ever there was the epitome of a human expressing unconditional love to walk this Mother Earth, it was you Aunty. My eternal love and gratitude for your generous, selfless, and protective spirit. With one broken heart…your eldest niece, Rana.

  2. Mary Louise lived a life of service, and I’m grateful to have known her. We spent one summer at the farm, and the beauty of the time will remain with me. The last time I saw Mary Louise was when she and Zoya hosted an afternoon reception at the Cullers home during the annual Miller reunion. I am glad she’s being buried high on the hill in the place she so loved.

  3. i have fond memories of mornings sitting around the tiny table in the Cullers kitchen with Aunty serving up coffee, eggs and bacon to whoever came in. At the Cullers home, everyone was made to feel welcome and Mary Louise was the primary reason why. It’s truly a testament to her nature that a whole generation of people who came through their house will always refer to her as Aunty. She will truly be missed.
