Thoughts and prayers to the family. We will miss Mary's sweet, loving soul. I was privileged to have her support as I advanced in the Pythian Sisters order, including having her make a special trip to invest me with my jewel of office when I became Grand Chief in Maryland. I always treasured her letters and every moment we shared together. She made everyone feel so special, like they were the only thing in the world at the moment. She'll have a place in my heart forever.

Sincere condolences to Rol, Kathy and family. Mary was the best neighbor anyone could ask for. We lived next door for many years. May she rest in perpetual peace.
