My deepest sympathy for your loss. Mary was a customer, and friend for many years. We had many talks and shared many stories through the years. I have really missed her in the last months. Not going to lie, we tangled a couple of times, but always ended up laughing together.! She was really a joy to know, and was loved by us all in the Salon. Thank you Marta for you help in the last few months. And definitely God Bless you for the care you gave your Mother. She was always so amazed at the beautiful meals you had delivered right to her door. She knew you had your hands full, and appreciated your thoughts for her, more than you know! She loved her girls, and grand and great grandchildren so very much... So proud of each one. She just beamed with pride when speaking of you all. God Bless Mary, and give you all strength at this difficult time. I will miss her always.
