Dear Mary Kay, I'm so sorry to learn of your passing. Though your absence will be profoundly felt by all who knew you, your spirit will live on and your acts of kindness will be long remembered. One of the last times I saw you, Julie and I had stopped at your house on our way to California. It was a good feeling to have dinner with you and Dick while we caught up with the news of our everyday lives. I wish we could have seen more of each other, but please know that you are in my thoughts and heart forever. Rest in peace. Love, Veronica

Dear Mary Kay, I am so sorry to hear of your passing. You will be greatly missed. As I think back on our younger years the most outstanding incident I have of you was the time you told me that you knew how to cut hair and asked if I'd be willing to let you give me a haircut. You accidentally snipped off a bit of my earlobe and I ran screaming from the room with you right behind me saying how sorry you were and later admitting that this was the first time you'd ever cut anyone's hair. Lucky me! I quickly forgave you because the look on your face told me that you felt worse than I did. Furthermore, I have had a lot of laughs about it over the years. I also recall how fun it was when you, Carol, Bonny and your mom stopped in for a visit. Thanks for being my cousin. Love, Julie

I was very sorry to hear the sad news about your passing away.

I remember the wonderful time that Jean and I had when we visited you and Dick at your home in Phoenix. Both you and Dick were kind enough to take Jean and I on some wonderful driving trips to see many points of interest that Arizona has to offer.

My sincere condolence to the Adloch family.

Mary Kay, The incident i remember most vividly that concerned you was when your father, who was very ill, came to our house and told us of your attempt to make him feel better by offering him a glass of Ginger Ale. He smiled as he recounted your kind gesture. He died a very short time later. May your reunion with him and other friends and relatives be a good one.

To a loving aunt i will miss your smile and your kind words. You were an inspiration for me growing up. I just wish I had had more time to come visit you both. My heart is sad knowing you are gone. But know in my heart you are in a better place and look forward to seeing you one day.... Love to the family.
