My favorite memory of Mary was when my daughter (now Avery Cox) graduated from high school and we had a cook out at our home. My mom had made potato salad and Mary went crazy about it. She positioned herself on a chair near the potato salad to “guard” it. Will miss your sweet smile. God Bless.

I wish I could be their Sat. Aunt Mary was so special to us all. I have been telling everyone that heaven has another angle. I sent some flowers. They should arrive on Friday. I tried to put from all the families but did not have space. I am sure the celebration service will be wonderful. We send our love and prayers to all. I may be home in February if weather is good. If so, I will try to visit. Ken
