Mary has been a wonderful friend over 50 years, she has gone from our midst but will forever be in my heart, she portrayed what a christian should be and was always willing to lend a helping hand to others.
May God bless her memory and if we live the kind of life Mary lived we will meet her on the streets of gold one day.

People just can't know the sorrow that another has to bear, but they can express their sympathy and show that they care. So, I'm sending this to tell the family that my thoughts and prayer is to keep you in our Savior's loving arms, and give you comfort during this time of sorrow.

I certainly appreciate Mary and the life she modeled before my family at First Church. Growing up in the church she was a vital contributor to the success and ministry of the church. I am grateful for her friendship with my parents and for her support over the years. May she rest in peace with her Savior.
