We have lived next door to these wonderful neighbors for many years. We have shared garden product, neighborhood block parties, friendly advice and great friendships over the years. Mary was always so kind and though she suffered many years was always cheerful and welcoming when we chatted across the fence or when I was able to spend time on her back porch or in her home. I will miss her so much. I know she is at peace and will be missed by many, especially by her loving and caring husband, Gary. We offer our support and help to Gary and his family at anytime. We all love you, dear Mary.
