I remember when ever I was at her home for a short visit Mary was so hospitable. With a big smile on she would have her hands full minding her grandchildren yet she would always offer me a seat and a coffee or something to drink. I can see how her influence has rubbed off onto her children and grandchildren. She will be remembered for a long time.

My condolences to the Ryan family. Your parents were wonderful people who enriched the life of their community. I have fond memories of Pat and Mary from years ago. And their kids were pretty special too
