  1. Catherine,

    So sorry to hear that your mother has passed. I will keep you in my prayers.

  2. My thoughts and prayers are with the family of Ms. Mary Dudley Gray. I grew up in the church with three of Ms. Dudley’s children; Tim, Jeff, and Ruth Ann. She and my mother Nell were close friends and even remained in touch after Ms. Dudley moved back to Springfield, OH.
    Rest in peace Ms. Dudley

  3. To the family: our sincerest sympathy. Mary was always pleasant to be around and willing to help with a smile when and where she could. May you always remember her caring spirit.
