Mary Ann and I have been close friends for over 50 years. We have shared both many sad and happy moments together over the years. She loved to call me "Rosemary Oregano...my Thyme is your Thyme" and burst into gales of laughter. We traveled all over the place together. Both my kids and I will miss her.
I love you Mary Ann.
God bless you, Rosie
