To Deborah, Glenda & Melissa,
We (You, Mitch & myself), were almost like brothers & sisters growing up in each others homes, going places and doing things together as both our families did so often. So now at 66 & looking back across all those years it would be very hard to pick out 'Any one Memory'. As you know, it's not so long ago that I had to say "Good Bye" to my own mother and so the Greatest Memory for me is that in my own Mother's life, Your Mother was the Best Friend she ever had, and even if she never said it or showed it quite as good as she could have, ... She Knew It! So, Thank God for Your Mother being in our lives & from my family (Rena, Emnet, Liya and myself), Our Deepest Sympathies & Heartfelt Condolences on this sad occasion of your Mothers passing. She was a Great Woman and Will Be Missed. Rest in Peace 'Miss Mary' & Go With God. Respectfully, Wayne Davis & Family
