My sincere condolences to the family. Praying that God sends his peace and comfort in the days ahead. Miss Mary knew me from the time I was 3, since Mr. Christian and my dad, James Taylor worked together at Sunshine. I’ll never forget when she had to witness me receive a paddling at Bottenfield, for tardies. She just stood there with teary eyes, telling me she was sorry. She was the sweetest lady and I’m glad she lived a long life.

The many, many days I spent at the home of J.P. & Mary are some of the most treasured of my memories. Mary was most definitely the sweetest lady with the most tender heart I have ever known. Her passing leaves a void in the lives of all who knew her. Praying for peace and comfort for her girls and the entire family.
Love,
Charlita Brown (one of her other girls)
