We meet people in our Lives who make a huge impact in our lives, people who make us laugh, people who give us advice, and people who makes you smile weather they are someone you know from your childhood or someone you just met, people who stay in your life and those who are in it for a second, we have had those small moments that have done so much with so little effort to making you have a better day.

You will never be forgotten, you were such an amazing person. You are thoughtful, kind and such a sweet person and even though we would only see each other and talk when I would see you at Mercy most importantly you made a friend out of me. Rest easy, I'm going to miss you so much Mary.

Dear Sweet Mary,
I’m so glad that Life took you down so many
Roads and I’m glad to know that you were successful in fulfilling your dreams from joining the Navy, becoming a wife with Children, a Grandmother, getting your Doctorate and becoming a Chiropractor.
You touched so many lives and you have left loving memories to all that loved and knew you including mine. My memories from High School and sitting next to you in some of our classes , talking about everything and your sweet smile and your giggles.
Mary, I know you are at Peace and I Pray the Lord gives your Family especially your Children and Grandchildren the Comfort of knowing that your Love for them was the most important thing to You and that, that Love and their memories of You comforts them until they meet You once again in Heaven.
