    So sorry for the Loss I’m always going to Cherish the memories I had with Aunt Mary. When we spoke in her bedrooms those are the conversations that I’m going to the cherish the Most. It hurts the most because she was always so wise, loving and didn’t sugar coat not one thing if you didn’t like what she said well that’s just how it had to be… She told me months before she left to pray for her and she was going to church with me, well now she can watch over us your truly going to be missed man with tears in my eye Until we meet again. You still get to shine but in God’s eye.

  5. Mary was truly a precious and rare gem. Her departure was a hurtful loss to many. She will be remembered for the love and compassion that she showed to myself and others. I will forever cherish the talks and fun times that we shared together.

  6. Rest in Heaven Aunt Mary. I remember her living down the street from Grandma Lou & Aunt Nancy / Uncle Robert. Me, JD & Annie would enjoy visiting everyone and seeing if Dana could go play… she was so easy to talk to and a very sweet lady.
    Hugs and prayers for my dad, all our cousins and aunts & uncles, and a multitude of family and friends who had the pleasure of knowing her.
