Michael and family,
I am sorry to read this, so sad. As I remember Mary Ann from Unilever who I worked with from time to time she was always so helpful, a hard worker, and someone who almost always had a smile on her face which is the first thing I think of about Mary Ann. She had a positive attitude and was always ready to help however she could. I hope you and your family's many special memories will help to sustain you in the days ahead. Sincere condolences to you and your family. Mary Sanderlin
