I have so many fond memories of Aunt Mary:
I rented my first place from Aunt Mary and Uncle Harold. Aunt Mary was a great help. She taught me how to set up a kitchen pantry, with a list we went to the Conover Winn Dixie and picked up everything a kitchen pantry needs. I learned how to make sweet tea from Aunt Mary.
I spent many afternoons visiting Aunt Mary, Steve, and Uncle Harold. I will treasure these memories forever.
When Aunt Mary wasn't able to drive she and I would take road trips up home to Mountain City to visit our family there.
You see, Aunt Mary was like a Mother to me. I shall miss her.
I am wishing that Our Lord bring comfort and peace to all Aunt Mary's family and friends. God Bless,
Pamela Walker Hill.
