I have known Miss Mary over 30 years, and she served as my second mother many times in my life. I remember she hand sewed rhinestones on my outfit for my first performance at Scorpio, and was always so supportive of Ashley, as well as all of us young, crazy friends of hers. She truly was a Mom to many that didn’t have supportive families of their own, and I’m pretty sure many of her grey hairs were due to me personally. I will never forget her kindness and generosity. She is loved❤️
