Dear Steve and family, I am heartbroken over the sudden loss of Mary Ann. She was such a vivacious spirit and full of life. It does not seem possible that she is suddenly gone. I am so very sorry for the hole that is inevitably left in your lives. She was the rock and she was the glue that held things together. She was a remarkable lady and I will miss her so much. I will miss her phone calls, text messages and her Facebook posts. She was so loving and always the same, no matter what she was going through, she managed to put everyone else first. She was no-nonsense, funny, smart and tenacious in her love and dedication to her family and friends. She always treated me and my sons as one of her own and we loved and appreciated her so much. I am so thankful I was able to see her at Alycia and Priscilla's weddings. She was so proud and thankful that the three of you kids had found your soulmates and she can rest easy knowing you will be happy in life. Make her even prouder by living the best lives you can and keep her memory alive. Knowing that she is not in pain and is in a much better place will give you comfort. She will always be with you in your hearts. She is only a memory away.

With love and deepest condolences.
Kelly

Mom
I can't believe that I'm writing this to you. You haven't been gone that long and my pain of missing you is almost unbearable. I want you to know that I have followed through with all your wishes and you would be so proud of us during this time.
I'm going to miss so much about you and our conversations on my way home from work. Thank you for all you have done for me and given to those you love and for taking care of those that needed help.
Spring was your time, for all the flower shows and lunches we had. Going to Lowry Park and Bush Gardens with dad & the grand kids, the summer music series at the park and your weeks at Norvid on John's Pass Beach. It almost seems ok that God chose this time of year for him to take you from us, he chose one of the best! I have so many memories that will last me my lifetime and will continue to share them.
Mom, You taught me some of life's biggest lessons, sometimes without even saying a word. I grew up seeing you treat people right and share kindness where it was needed the most. Every day, I hope to live up to your example... and every day, I'm so great full to be your son. You don't have to worry any more and I promise to take care of dad and the family, " I got this".
No more pain or worrying for you now Mom. Go be with God, your Dad and Brother and I promise that we will be together again.

Love Always, your son.
Steve Jr.

My prayers go out to the family. The short time that I spent around Mary she was a very special lady. I know that she loved Priscilla and Kali very much.

No that you are in are prayers for healing for Priscilla and your family.

mom,
l don’t even know where to begin. this doesn’t feel real at all. we always talked about how you’d live forever. you’ve been there since the day l was born. l know that death is apart of life, but l still can’t except it. i’m going to miss all the heart to heart conversations we’ve had, our lunch dates, and just our everyday life we had together. l know at times i’ve taken you for granted and l wish l could go back in time and do just one more lunch date, busch gardens date, or chuck e cheese date with kali. my life will never be the same without you. l look up to the sky for some type of sign, just so l know you’re there. this house will never be the same. l love you more than you know, and l know that you’re at peace. thank you for making me such a strong women, mother, & wife. you and papa had a wonderful 55 years and l hope to have what you had one day. l love you my sweet angel, until we meet again one day. take care of us all.

Mary,

There are no words I can say that could ever express how greatful and blessed I am to have had you in my life. You are an amazing woman that will be missed by everyone who knew you.

I have so many good memories of you from our trips to Lowry Park with the kids, our long talks about life and just the way you loved me and my children as we were your own.

Thank you for always being there for us. May you RIP and know that you will always be in our hearts and in our thoughts!

We love you - love Trudi and Jim Ellis, Tommy DiPierro and Crystal Carter, Calvin and Heather DiPierro and Michael And Victoria Tyler!
