Rose & family,
I had the pleasure of working with Mary a few times as a precinct election worker. I was astounded that she was such a bundle of happiness, smiles, & positive energy. I can only imagine how much each of you will be missing her sunshine. May you be comforted by God's promises & love and your memories. My sincere sympathy to each of you.

To the Hutton Family,

I didn't know Mary like my Grandmother (Sally) and my mother (Helen) did and they loved her. But even as a child, Mary would make me laugh and I just wanted to crawl in her lap and get a hug.

I loved Mary also.

The Heart can feel Love and it can feel pain. May the memories that will be shared in these coming days, bring moments of Love to your heavy hearts.

God Bless
