I have so many memories of Mrs. Saylor. She was one of my most favorite people in the world to talk to. She always had a kind kind word and never had a negative thing to say about anything or anyone. She was always upbeat even when she was feeling down. I’ll always remember our talks and the time she jumped in our pool with all her clothes on. That laugh was like no other. My heart aches that you’re gone but I know God has a special seat for someone so special like you. I’ll never forget you. You are always with me. Thank you for being a part of my life. Love you Mrs. Saylor. 😘

Aunt Mary,. I'll never forget the fun we had at your house as kids, the family cookouts in the summer and the gigantic Christmas trees every holiday. I miss our talks over the backyard fence, you waking up before our rooster and the red Sox games we used to watch together. You ALWAYS had a kind word and were so much fun to be around. I love and miss you.
