I met Mary Ann at Cardiac Rehab in January of 2018, by the 2nd session we became friends and she worked so hard it inspired me being much younger and a little intimidated, she helped a lot. We got to a point where we would just look at each other and she had a wonderful smirk on her face and we knew what each other was thinking. We got along so well we both signed up for the next phase and we stayed in it until today. I am so sorry I didn't get to say good bye to you at the Hi Tech Clinic - you know if I didn't have another ankle surgery I would have been with you laughing. You are a special special person, everyone you met loved you. God Bless Mary Ann - and your family. You were a trooper and never complained. I am sure you will make Heaven a better place. To the family, sorry I can't be there as I have ankle surgery therapy at 10am. I am so sorry for your loss! You are all in my thoughts and prayers! Dave
