I’ve been practicing physical therapy for 34 years in this county. Mary is one of my all-time favorites! ❤️ Definitely kept me on my toes! She was always appreciative and told me thank you. She’d argue with a sign post, but would give in eventually if we told her she needed to do something to get better. She was one of a kind and I’m going to miss her!
