Mary Ann and I are first cousins. Her Mom, my Aunt Mary, my Mom's sister, always allowed me to spend time with her wonderful family. I loved being there with my cousins, playing games, wading in the creek catching crawl dabbers, I was so jealous of Mary Ann's beautiful dark eyes. She was kind in taking me to church events with her, especially Vacation Bible School. She would introduce me to her friends. My favorite time was mealtime. Aunt Mary was a great cook!! Do I hear an Amen?! I recall how she set the table every night in the wonderful bright colors of fiesta ware. I use it myself to this day just because it reminds me of my times with Mary Ann, Tim, Susan and Uncle Johnny and dear Aunt Mary.

Mary Ann went on to become a good cook herself. I pay tribute to her and know how much she will be missed. My heart believes that she is with her Mom and Dad and at peace. God Bless you, sweet Mary Ann and thanks for the good times.
