I am saddened and My Heart is touched by the loss of Maryann. Lord knows I had the great pleasure of caring for her for 3 years. I enjoyed Her and her Husband Bill whom I tell Him alll the time He is My Best friend. He has taught Me a lot with his wisdom while I worked in there Beautiful home. We worked together to fix things in their home, He would tell me funny stories about their life growing up and I even remember the story about when He and Maryann met which was the sweetest thing ever. We would cook some nice desserts and dishes together from his and Maryann's Parents Recipe books. So I kept them both healthy and fed very well. I really missed working with Maryann and I feel very honored that the (2 Women Mrs. Lisa and Mrs. Blanch) I got to work there after I left were still there 2yrs later with Maryann until the end. I'd go by and see Her and Bill from time to time and I will continue to visit with Bill. This is one Great Family, I must say they were Wonderful Parents and Grandparents and Mrs. Maryanne will truly be missed by Me dearly and so many others. May She Rest in Peace in heaven above. AMEN!

P.S. Weeping may endure for the night, but Joy ALWAYS comes in the morning! AMEN!!

Love Always,
