My heart goes out to you and your family. Mary was an angel on earth. I use to always go and talk to her at Penny's. She was a very special friend to my Angel on earth.
As hard as this is she is happily reunited with her Carl and Mike. She will always be with you .

Your mother's memory is your heritage, a blessing from above, her gentle spirit, even now encircles you with love. The beautiful light of your precious mother has left us, but the glow of her life and her great love remains with all of us who were blessed enough to know and love her. We pray comfort in your beautiful memories of her, strength in the love you have for her and each other, and peace in your heart knowing you will see her again in heaven. With love and sympathy Jim and Jeanette

The first time I met Mary, I knew how special she was. She had a dignity and grace about her and she always made me feel like part of the family. You all take after her so much. Thank you all for accepting me into the family and I am so grateful to have had the chance to know and love her for the past 14 years. Her memory will live on forever. God has received the most special angel above.
