My prayers go out to Mary's family...It was her earnest prayer that not one of her loved ones would reject the truth as it is found in the BIble, and that everyone of them will be reunited with her in GODs kingdom. This my prayer too, to be carried on in her memory. She worked hard for the LORD and is a hard act to follow. I will do my best to finnish the work that she had started as she asked me to just before her passing. GOD bless and Keep you all. Ron, Drew, Jonathan, Christina and myself Loved Ms. Mary and each and everyone of her loved ones. GOD Bless you all, Joy

Sharon, Davie, Laraine,
I am so saddened for the loss of a wonderful person. She will always be my Aunt Mary. She never forgot birthdays and special holidays. She loved my mom so much and my mom loved her as well. I suspect she and my mom are having a grand reunion. She was a woman was great faith and shared it with all who would listen.
Love and Blessings,
