My mom was a AWSOME person...she couldn't wait to become a grandma and boy was she excited when I called her with the news...she was in the delivery room during both my deliveries and I wouldn't have had it any other way !! She was an AWSOME grandmother and loved loved loved those boys with all her heart....she was excited to learn of being a great grandma and I am glad she got to be here to see and hold Colten...she had so many plans to spoil him as she did with the boys...always running to work to tell her stories of Austin and Logan after a night stay with her...she was always there to help me thru hard times and good times...Holidays will never be the same...our tradition for 20 years was the Santa Clause Parade then heading out to hit the crowds for a day of shopping and lunch....This has been an extremely hard year to lose both your parents within months apart and your grandfather who was my everything....3 people gone within months of each other....Thank God for my strong family ties and I know they will be here for me and my kids....my mother taught me family is everything !! I love you with all my heart !!

Mary was always happy and joyful. She was always dressed to the nines with stylish clothes, makeup and beautiful, flawless hair.
She was always laughing and her enthusiasm was contagious.
She will be missed.
Fly high Mary.

Edith, Ronda, Beth & Paula, my sympathies and prayers. Even though we will all miss her, I know she’s getting her personal Elvis concert now and arguing with her Dad and she’s pain free.
