I have a lot of good memories with Mary. My daughter was visiting me tonight in my assisted living and I was wondering about Mary. I knew she was in hospice care. She found this obituary. I am so sorry for your loss. She was a good friend. Lots of memories from our childhood. We were neighbors as children and went to school together. We stayed friends all of these years. My prayers are with your family.
