How ironic. Only two days before seeing Mary's obituary in the paper, her name was
brought up at our monthly IBM retiree lunch. Mary had been a part of the group before she became ill, and we were thinking of her and wondering how she was doing. So sad.
I remember when Mary was looking to adopt a dog, I drove her to the to the SPCA to check out some prospects. She had no idea how to get to the SPCA, so I told her I'd take her. She found, and a few days later, adopted, "Max." I took her to pick him up. They were a good match...both feisty and fun. She loved Max, and he was a lot of entertainment and company for her. I'm glad I got to know Mary, and I was saddened by her illness. She was a sweet, and funny, lady. My sympathy goes out to the family.
