My condolences to Mary's family upon her passing. I remember her when she worked for Profit Foods at General Motors. She always was very pleasant and friendly when we would buy food from her. She looked like she had just come from the beauty shop because her hair was always styled perfectly. Really missed her once she left the job. R.I.P. Mary

Mike & Family,

Sue and I are sorry to hear of your grandmothers passing. We know how much she and your grandfather meant to you, and will still mean to you in the comming years. It is hard to watch them go, and the vacant spot left in your heart never really heals, but those are good memories. I still remember working with my granddad on his farm as a teenager and again when I came home from Vietnam. It helped make me sane again. The wisdom I got from those days far outstripped anything he could have ever given me. I hope you have the same from your grandmother. Ron and Sue Wenger
