Ms. May was the sweetest person and such a quick wit! She made our office visits to St. Rita so much fun! She would always ask on our visits if we brought her chocolates...many times we did.

One thing I will never forget, Ms. May would say to me often, "When I pass away, have masses said for my soul!" I will Ms. May! I love you!

Love, Melissa

Janet, your mother was the most genuine and loving person I had ever known. I have so many memories of the Saenger shows and pre-show dinners over the years with our little group. So many laughs! The best memory though is when you and I went to an auction at the Lions Home and I kept bidding on things but didn't realize I had no money to pay for them. Your mother had to come, wearing her pj's and a robe, and rescue us! Those mudslides should not have been free!!
I'm so sorry for your loss. I know you will miss her dearly. I love you my friend!
