I'm sending deepest condolences and love to my Cousins ,Calvin & Sherrlie and extended relatives .

Mary was my aunt . I had only met her a few times before my moms passing in August of 2012 . My mom Mamie Ann was Mary's older sister who had left Texas many years ago .
I was so blessed to have gotten close to my aunt Mary over this past 8 years.
She understood me and loved me unconditionally.
I'm going miss her more than words can say . She was sweet but so stubborn too just like I am .
My aunt Mary will always hold a special place in my heart .
I love you aunt Mary RIP. 😢💜🙏
