Dear Carl and family. I am very sorry for your loss. I do not think I knew Mary but I remember Carl as a great guy and I am sure Mary had to be a great person. I will remember you all in my prayers.

Aunt Mary definitely made growing up fun! When I started babysitting during the summer while she worked we would spend hours gossiping at the table when she got home. I think I was 14? Good talks about anything actually. I'd spend Sunday nights because she and Uncle Carl went to work so early just chatting before bed. She drove a cool car and let me drive it when we went places when I was old enough... loved driving the Cutlass!!! I'd pop in anytime and always welcome even after leaving Michigan. Loved her laugh, her smile, her voice, her... just being her. Much love and prayers Uncle Carl, Steven, Kelly and Randy and family!!! I'm so very sorry for your loss and so very blessed to have had her in my life.

Much love, Rob. Aka Robert 😉

I remember many times coming over to see Aunt Mary and Uncle Carl uninvited but never unwanted. They both took me in and gave me a safe place to visit. Aunt Mary always was good for a laugh and a sincere talk. She was always kind and funny. She loved to play bingo and talk. She had a great smile and was always kind to me and my family. Aunt Mary, you will be missed by many. Forever in our thoughts.
