We are so sorry to hear about Mary. We met Mary about 11 or 12 years ago when our son lived in Newnan and she did his taxes. He was so impressed with her that he encouraged us to use her, so we did. He has since moved back to Kansas, but after all these years we would still pack up our taxes and send them to her. We are going to miss her. For her family, may God wrap His loving arms around you and give you comfort and peace at this difficult time.

We are very sorry for your loss, Mary was a beautiful person, very kind and made us feel very good when we were going to clean her house. We will never forget the help she gave to our sister Silvana. Thank you Mary! A hug for your whole family and friends.

So sorry to hear about the passing of Mary. She was a trooper. She will be missed by many. Her obituary states that she treated her clients like family, and I am testifying to that statement, "she did treat me like family". May God bless the family during this time of sorrow.
