Mary Ann, Caroline, Ann Marie, Karen & Tony & all Zokvic family members. Our thoughts and prayers are with you this week. Please accept our deepest sympathy. Loved being around Mary. She made us laugh. Loved listening to all her stories about life. She made you feel so young. I remember her showing us how proud she was of her tiny little tattoo. She will be truly missed. She always had a twinkle in her eye. So much much fun being in a room with the Zokvic family. We have great memories of the many get-togethers with the family and will keep them all tucked within our hearts. She was so proud of her children & grandchildren. We will miss you, Mary. God bless.
