Mary (Mare Mare) lightened up my day every time I was around her. She made me laugh, cry, and everything in between :) she is the reason I do what I do. To see her smile was the highlight of my day. I love you Mary. You will always hold a special piece of my heart.

I’ve never met a more positive happy person! Regardless how bad life could be, Mary always saw the bright side of life and people. She made us laugh and will be greatly missed around our holiday table.
Peace, love and comfort to Bonnie and Mike!
