My favorite memories of Mary (Aunt Mary) to me ,even though we were cousins is her hospitality when her daughters and I got together as young cousins. She made the greatest baked ham and trimmings and was always there to listen to all of us with good advice. She was like a second mom And ultimately was my sponsor for Confirmation. Rest In Peace Aunt Mary, I know Uncle Art greeted you with his jokes and laughter, your “Artie”. Will always love you. My thoughts with my cousins Barbara and Norma. Love, Stella and family
