I met Mary when I joined the Kendall Co. in 1965. Entering my first job after my Air Force service, I had no idea what working for a large company was all about. Mary was always helpful and supportive. On a number of occasions, she guided me through the bureaucracy and helped me cope with the intricacies of the business. She was always happy and positive and helped me with a number of internal issues. We remained in touch even when we moved to California and I will miss speaking with her each Christmas…she was always upbeat, positive and happy …I will miss our holiday phone call.

I met Mary at the Marine Corps League Auxiliary. She was always such a sweet, kind lady. Watching her with Manny at the Marine Corps Birthday Ball was such a treat. It brings joy to my heart to know they are together again. Mary was a Beautiful Blessing. We are unable to attend the services but we will be praying for all of you. God Bless You!!

Mary..... it was my pleasure and a blessing to have known you and spend time with you, our Lord is waiting with open arms. You are Loved by many!

Count your blessings instead of your crosses;
Count your gains instead of your losses.
Count your joys instead of your woes;
Count your friends instead of your foes.
Count your smiles instead of your tears;
Count your courage instead of your fears.
Count your full years instead of your lean;
Count your kind deeds instead of your mean .
Count your health instead of your wealth;
Count on God instead of yourself.
