Our condolences to Larry and friends of Mary.
We were next door neighbors to Mary and Winston when they lived in North Dakota. Mary and I would get up early each morning and go for walks. Winston and Dennis would work on small projects together - We were the "young couple" next door they took under their wings.

In lieu of flowers ....we've made a memorial donation to the "God's Child Project" in Mary's name.

We will be thinking of you all Saturday morning as you take Mary to her final resting place.
Hugs and Prayers
Dennis & Linda
