Our cousin Mary will always be remembered by our family as the kind, compassionate, jovial,loving person she was. We will always remember the times she and George visited our parents on the farm, lots of laughs and jesting and stories. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

With Love,
The Jim and Meeta Palesano Family
