I am so sorry for your loss and was shocked to hear the news. I had just meet with Mary and Gene regarding their insurance policies just a few weeks prior to this news. My prayers to Gene and her family. She was such a nice lady.

Gene & Jerry - you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I have known Mary since I was a little girl as my parents and Mary and Jay were good friends. I always recall Mary's jovial laugh and her ability to make you smile. She was a wonderful lady and I know she is celebrating with our Lord.
God bless you and keep you all during this difficult time.

Mary Tayloe, my good friend, I will miss you dearly. You managed to make me laugh to tears so much that I couldn't wait see what you would say next! I know you are doing the same in Heaven. I love you my Sister in Christ. Thank you for all the times you grabbed my hand and put it to your face in gratitude for us. Through your friendship, I think I was far more blessed than you!
