Libby and family
I am so sorry to hear of Marys' passing. She was a bright spot at the Assisted Living home
in Elkton, Va. when she lived there. She would come into my office everyday and fill me in on the happenings at the home the night before. We had lots of laughs- so many- what a sense of humor! She was a very bright woman who lived in the Moment- I was blessed to have known her.
