I was just looking through my phone and found this. Just this week she came to my mind. I have missed her so much since moving to Richardson. We taught together at Fuller and went to CBS together for several years. She was a great friend and example for me.
I am so sorry for your loss.

Moms are very special people. They love us when we're good love us when we're bad. My prayers are with your family's and with the group of people that loved your mom and family. Your family has touched me for years. I read the materials, have memories and remember the stories. I know Christ as my savior and have seen examples of Christ in your family.

Mary,

There are so many more ways you have blessed my life than I can write. I am forever grateful for the wonderful son you raised who is the best husband to me and father for our daughters.

You modeled the importance of education for my daughters. You demonstrated how to be a strong and independent woman. Your spunk and sass resonate within my girls as you helped shape them into the amazing women they have become.

You lived a life of service to others: your family, your students, and your friends. You invested in relationships remembering birthdays, baking cakes, and showing up when friends needed you.

You cared for us well. You leave a legacy of love in our hearts. We will miss you Mommom but we will never forget the imprint you made on our lives.

I believe it takes a God sent woman to become the wife to Bill you became. I have seen the great companionship the two of you shared. Through that companionship you raised a great family together, from that I gained the greatest friend I have ever known. His ( Scott, ) presence in my life made great differences in the out come of my life. All because of the mother you are. Thank you so much for all the stories you have shared with me, and all the times you just needed your tires checked. You are an amazing woman that has touched the lives of many, whom will always be externally grateful. You gave to others with no expectations of payment.

John 3:16 gave us a promise from our savior. Mom lived this promise every day of her life as she shared the love of Jesus with everybody she came across.
From the time Scott and I were small children mother always made sure we knew the love of Jesus. She made sure we were in church every time the doors were open, she made sure we attended vacation Bible school. She sang songs of Jesus with us.
As we grew older her task wasn’t always so easy. However overtime her perseverance and Christian example won.
She shared with me just a few weeks ago how happy and thrilled she was to have two God-fearing Christian sons. Her most prized accomplishment during her time on earth. I replied to her, Mom your gift of God‘s love and having Christian sons is the best gift any mother could give their children.

Mom will be greatly missed. But her memory and love will live on.
I love you Mom!
