To Tracy and family,
Your mom Mary was very dear to me. She was a generous friend, good listener and gracious to me for many years. She was a perfectionist about her house and drove us crazy but I am missing her warm smile, her quirkiness and beautiful heart. She talked all the time about you guys and how much she loved you and what you all were doing in life. She was a very proud grandmother for sure! I will miss her deeply. Please take care and remember her with lots of loving memories!

We are so sorry for the loss of your mom. Mary will be remembered with fond memories by me and my family. She was loved by us and we enjoyed her company very much, I always enjoyed our conversations and she also liked visiting with the dogs and Loring. We will miss her smiling face very much.
Linda, Loring and Loring J
