What a wonderful long life your loved one had, Psalm 90:10 says that the days of our years are 70 years, And if because of special mightiness they are 80 years. Special mightiness indeed. May the memories of the wonderful times you shared together bring a smile and joy in your heart.

Aunt Mary,you are such a sweet and gentle soul. My life and our family were enriched just by your presence! Thank you for your service to the country, your dedication to your family and kind words for all. You will be missed!

I grew up in the Sinclair household and family reunions with Aunt Mary. She carried herself with such dignity and grace that it wasn't until I was an adult that I learned that Aunt Mary and Uncle Herman were divorced. The love that she showed our family was pure love. One of my fondest memories was when we would all hang out at Uncle Arnold's cottage in Maine; the kids all swimming in the pond and the adults having iced tea watching us from the lawn. I remembered the two of us (myself and Lynette) diligently paying attention to Aunt Mary as she taught us how to make her fish stew, to this day it still doesn't come out the same way. You will be missed.

Mary and I meet in 1974 at Square D where we worked. She was a one of a kind of lady.We remained friends since then. We had lots of good times together also with Brenda Hughes. One day beach trips to Carolina beach where she would always lay under the pier and read.She loved reading so much. I will miss her a lot she was the best friend for many many years. Prayers of peace and comfort for her family.We will meet again .
