I spoke to Meemaw last month; she called my mobile thinking it was Taylor. This happened a hand full of times over the years. I will always remember the sweet sound of her voice. A very pleasant put you at ease kind of voice and on the other end of the line I would envision her soft smile. Her voice could brighten any one's day.

Great grandmothers are known to be sweet but she was by far the sweetest of them all.

With deepest sympathy,

Mary was a special lady to all that knew her. I’m so glad I got to know her and her kindness. I know I’ll see her in heaven. Mary loved her children and always smiled when talking about them. I would like to bless you all.

When Steve, Stan, Saundra and my brother, sister and I were growing up together on Castleman Street, I remember that
Mary often wore her favorite perfume-Jungle Gardena. And there was a gardena flower bush growing in her front yard.
I've never forgotten this memory.
