Mary and I came into the family at the about the same time. We were both young, marring brothers. We grew up together, had and raised our children together, and grew old together. I loved Mary as a sister and will miss her. There will be a big empty space in my life without her, untill we meet again in heaven. She is with her beloved husband, Ned, and all the loved ones who went before her. Until we meet again, I love you Mary. Ruth
