I was very sad to hear of Mary Ann's passing. I enjoyed talking to her when I would pick Mom up from work at Macon Blueprint. She was a good friend to Mom and very supportive when Mom had to take time off to help me with the boys when Kyle was very ill in Germany. I will never forget that and was very grateful to her. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. May your wonderful memories of Mary Ann help you through this difficult time.
