Dear John, Samantha, Sean, Heather and Tim,
We have no words to express our sadness about Mary's passing. Butch and I have so many fun (and crazy!) memories of time we all spent together and will cherish them. We are so sorry we couldn't attend the services, but Butch is not able to be around groups of people at this time and his mobility is very bad - he is confined to a wheelchair. Please know that our hearts were with you today....Mary is now at peace in a beautiful place we can only dream of....many prayers....Love, Colette and Butch

I remember your mom as a friendly, kind and generous person. Whenever I would see her she would break out in a big smile and chat with me. I know she enjoyed you and your whole big family so much, Heather. You have my sympathy, love and prayers. Jane
