Mary Anne had just had an operation on her right hand or wrist. She couldn't turn the key to start the car. So she leaned over, put her head on my lap, and just before she turned the key with her left hand, she looked up at me with those big eyes of hers, and said "hi, honey!!" I cracked up!

Another time we were at Lowe's or Home Depot in Tomball. We needed to get some shelves for our craft booth. When we went in the store, I saw they had motorized scooters. She already knew they did, and got on one of them. I thought they were pretty cool, until Mary Anne tried to run me over!!

She was a hoot!!

I miss my friend. Mary Anne was more than my friend, she was like the sister I never had. We spent many hours painting and laughing together. I am happy she is finally out of pain, but I am missing her terribly. My sympathy to the family.
