Well, Mary, you had a beautiful funeral yesterday. But you know that, since we felt your presence and assumed you were behind a few quirky things. Lots and lots of people came. Philip was phenomenal, and created exactly the experience you would have wanted. Ellen - a rock throughout, and Peter provided the humor we all needed. Janet was a superstar, navigating the day very well from her wheelchair. The sibs came together as you would have wanted. We laughed. We cried. And sometimes did both simultaneously. You could feel the love in the building. We're sure you're busy conferring with Ace and Joan about how we can help each other get to heaven, but just thought you should know that the day was a wonderful tribute to you.

Hello Phil, I am a coworker of your Mom’s. I am so sorry for your loss. Mary was very passionate about her job and always gave a 100 percent. She took pride in the fact that she was dedicated and rarely missed a day. She had a big heart. She would always check on me and others if she ever thought we were having any kind of issue. When she spoke of you and her Mom you could tell she adored you both. She had a great laugh! She will really be missed at work. My sincere condolences to your family.

Mary was a bright light for many people. She was a beloved mother, friend ,sister and mentor and the world is a much dimmer place without her. While she is no longer physically with us, she will always be in our thoughts and hearts and we will continue to cherish her memory, and to strive to love and be generous as she did throughout her life.
