I will always remember Aunt Mary for all of the precious times that she gave all of us growing up. She would always take the time to listen to us with a caring heart. We all liked staying with her, probably because we were thinking that we could get away with more. Rest in peace and go fly high on that mountain, I know that there are many others waiting for you there. We now have another angel there looking after us.
