Very touching graveside service today for Mary King. What a magnificent honor it was for me to be her friend. She had integrity, love, gave service freely, loved Heavenly Father, came from good pioneer stock and shared good advice to all who passed her way. I know that she is thrilled to be with her family but will be greatly missed by those that are left behind. I am so grateful that she left behind a legacy that will be remembered by all who knew her. She taught her children correct principles and was never afraid to speak how she felt. That is something I really appreciated about Mary was her total candor. You didn't have to guess how she felt about you, what her opinion was, etc. yet so kind and loving to all around her. I never heard her talk bad about anyone. What a great example she was to me. She had so much to give to everyone that crossed her path. Her stories were amazing. Her memory was keen. I am very thankful to have known Mary and hope to be more like her in many ways. Thank you, Mary, for being a friend to all, sharing your home with so many, freely giving of yourself and your love, it was very much noticed and appreciated. I will greatly miss you in my life. We will do our best to carry on and love life the way that you did. Thank you for being a great daughter of Heavenly Father and teaching correct principles through your great example to the world. Families are Forever. See you in HEAVEN. Your loving friend, Cindy Wilson
