A dear friend of 41 years. No matter how far apart we lived or how long between visits, when we did get together it was like no time passed at all. Always a friend and always a great laugh. We started off as neighbors and the fun we had on weekends was the best. We cherish the friendship we have with the whole Gellock family. Mary you will be missed. We wish you happiness in your afterlife with Frank. . God Bless. See you again someday. Love you Joe and Julie Niebergall
