I will always treasure my memories of you Aunt Mary. I spent many of times with you when I was little going shopping and you teaching me how to sew. You treated me as your own daughter. You will be greatly missed. Love you always.

My precious sister in law you are flying among the Angels now and no doubt will be singing in the choir. Such a beautiful soul here on earth, loving all and always looking for the best in people. Your sweet laugh and beautiful smile will always be remembered. Go gently and find those loved ones that have gone before you. The world was a more beautiful place because you were in it. With love always,
