When we lived in Bloomington, we were close friends with Mary. We had lost touch with one another until recently when she reached out through messenger. We became fb friends, and I was able to see pictures of her with her hubby, kids, & grandkids. She loved you all so much! I know she fought hard. She was a sweet person. I’m sad she lost her battle but happy she is free from all that now🙏🏼
