...........................Mary is not gone.............................

Don't cry because Mary because is gone. Thank GOD she lived and brought you and everyone around her joy.
Don't dwell on the emptiness you feel in your heart, but rather the fullness of the love we all shared for her.
All of your tomorrows will have joy in them when you remember your times with her.
Smile and rejoice and go on with your life---because that's what Mary has done.

ANITA STORY

October 18, 2018

My wonderful Aunt Fantastic. I will forever keep her in my heart. No matter what was happening in her life, whenever I was around she always had a positive outlook on life. We laughed about so many things, she would always joke about any situation. There is a story behind the Aunt Fantastic and how she got the name. Ask, someone knows, but know it or not she will always be FANTACTIC to me in so many ways. I will keep her close to me everyday. Loved her more than she ever knew.

My grandma Mary Rose, she was the most beautiful flower standing in a field of dirt, with lightening striking around her and thunder banging she stood there beautiful as ever. She was remarkable, one of a kind. I’ve never connected with somebody more purely than I did her. My whole childhood is filled with memories of my Grandma. From teaching me to swim, ordering from the Swan man and loading her freezer up it, playing Judge Judy, watering her plants and listening to her talk to them as they were her children to love and nurture. Dancing with her to Frank Sinatra in her skirts as dresses and her snow boots she had from New York and of course BINGO. My grandma taught me kindness, love and the ability to want to make people smile and be happy. She was a natural when it came to caring for people around her, whether that be a stranger or her family. I’ve seen her try to give a fellow resident the Heimlich and witnessed her push somebody in a wheelchair while she was in her own wheelchair struggling, she fed her fellow residents when they did not have the strength to feed themselves. My Grandma was the feistiest and the most gentle. She was everything a person could want or need. I will miss her every second of every day. A couple days before she passed she gathered the strength to hold my hand and promise me she will always be here for me, she will always protect me and our family. I know my Grandma is with me, I will never doubt that.
