Dear Davis Democratic Club Members,

It is with a heavy heart, that I regret to inform the club, that Mary Lou
Hernandez passed at 3PM today, August 20, 2008. 

I personally am in shock.  She was a fighter and we were told that she had a
good chance of living another 4 weeks.  So, I am not ready for this.  Where
others would have given up a year ago, Mary Lou lived each day in very high
spirits, with a positive outlook and optimism that would not be dampened.
It was always a joy to see her walking with her husband around town.  She
was very happy to be alive each day.

If you wish to send a card or word of condolence to her family, their
mailing address is:  
The Hernandez Family (Husband is Ernest)
933 Craig Place  
Davis, CA  95616

She will be greatly missed by all, especially the DDC Board.  Mary Lou
appeared in the Ice Cream Social picture in the Enterprise last year and had
attended the event, helping Betty Wier with welcoming people at the door.
She was a very hard worker at events, like the Yolo County Booth and Davis
Campaign Headquarters, and very outspoken at meetings.  I personally am very
saddened by her death.  I am hoping that Mary Lou will be remembered at the
Ice Cream Social with a minute or two of silent meditation or prayer.
Please also remember Julia Sanchez, who was Mary Lou's close and dear
friend.  They worked together in all club activities and joined the DDC
board together.  They were so close, that they seemed to be telepathic and
seemed to know what the other was thinking.  I thought that they were
sisters for years and was shocked to learn that they were not.

An additional note:  Mary Lou will be recognized posthumonously at the 25th
Annual Concilio Awards Dinner-Dance on October 18, 2008 at the Yolo County
Fair Grounds.  Her family will be given the Community Award for her long
years of community service in Davis and Yolo County.  Contact Rick Gonzales
