Louie, Aaron, Cara, Sara, Cindy, Susie and George I was shocked and saddened to learn of Mary Ellen's passing in late December. There are no words I can think of to ease the pain of your loss. All I can say is that she was loved by her family and friends and as long as we all keep her in our memories and hearts she will live on as long as we do.

My sympathies to Mary's family and friends. I knew Mary in grade school and loved hanging out with such a sweet girl. Always with a smile and taught me the boogaloo dance for our talent show which we won first place. I had not seen Mary in years but have very fond childhood memories of her. My deepest sympathies
