Uncle Jack and family,
Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss. Mary was a wonderful woman, always had a smile and no matter what happens I will never forget her laugh and her way of making everyone feel at home and part of the family. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. Heaven has truly been blessed with another angel.

Thanks for being a second mom to me for so many years. Always had a smile for us when we probably deserved a thump on the head.
