Frank, Kathy, Marilyn, Bob, & Karen,
May the Lord be your comfort and strength. We will miss Mary dearly. We always enjoyed stopping to see her when back up to see Mom & Dad. She so enjoyed the kids & showing them her flowers. The quilts she gave the kids are some of their favorites. She was such a blessing and an encouragement to me, and to our family.

Frank & Kathy, Marilyn & Bob and Karen, We will all miss Mary. LuAnn and I saw her Feb 21 and she had the Olympics on. She so enjoyed her sports. She was bright and cheerful as she always was and looking forward to Spring (weren't we all?). We enjoyed visiting about Anna and Daniel's kids and the photos they send. We were so glad to have that visit, she was such a good friend and neighbor. May the Lord comfort you all.
Love in Christ, Ken & LuAnn Keane
