We were sad to learn of Mary's passing but also happy to realize she is in heaven with her blessed Savior. Since my sister and I were only 17 months apart, we were involved in many activities together growing up. One especially prominent memory was our cousin coming to stay with us in Phoenix each spring due to her health, being with us all summer. She was right between Mary's age and mine, so the three of us were pretty close and shared clothes. (This cousin is also with the Lord now.) Another memory with Mary was the two of us playing dolls with twin girls who were her age. We had such fun together! I will miss Mary but the memories will continue to stay with me as I''m sure her husband and kids have such memories also.
