Aunt Mary,
Everyone who had the chance to experience life with you know how special you were. Our family was so blessed to have you in our lives-especially me. You were an angel filled with love and shared your gift with constantly. You always had an open heart and mind. Most off all you made everyone feel important, and put others first before taking care of yourself. You touched so many lives and made a difference in all of us. Whether it was preparing our taxes, giving business or personal advice, being a shoulder to cry on, lending a listening ear, gathering family for the holidays, preparing a special meal, planning parties, taking care of us when we were sick, helping us through school, making the summer so much fun, guiding us through difficult times, giving us gifts, lending us money, sharing a worry or a tear, celebrating special moments, or intstilling faith in us-it was you who planted the seed of love in all of us. You were the rock of our family. You helped us see the good in the bad, and the positive in the negative.You always said, "Everything will be alright." It was you that made everything work out. You were an amzaing beautiful lady with great qualities. You were compassionate, caring, giving, kind, selfless, honest, genuine, patient, and loved endlessly-without expecting anything in return. Without any doubt we could always count on you. You were only a phone call away. As Larry would say, "Mary King Live." You were an inspiration to me and everyone around you. Not many people possess the strength and positive outlook that you had throughtout your life. You were unique and someone that will never be replaced. You never failed to listen and always understood when I had no one to turn to. It was your guidance, love, and support that helped me evolve to the woman I am today-for that I am so grateful. I was truly blessed to have you as my aunt, second mother, and best friend. Aunt Mary thank you for always believing in me, treating me like a daughter, never judging me, and loving me unconditionally. I will never forget you for all the days of my life, and will forever cherish the fond memories we shared. You will be truly missed and always remain a part of me. I promise to take care of Raymond, Aunt June, and Gianni.

We Love You With All Our Hearts,
Larry, Elizabeth, Bryan, and Brayden

Dearest Mary,

Can't help but have a flood of emotions looking at your picture in this guest book. You and June were my first friends when I moved to Florida nearly 27 years ago. I remember meeting this loud Italian family, full of love and laughter......I felt like I fit right in. You had the kind of family most of us only dream of having. Your mother and father were wonderful, loving parents which no doubt made you the nurturing mother you were to Raymond.
My heart was breaking for June, Raymond, Donna, Sylvia and little Gianni when June called me to tell me you had passed away.
You will be sorely missed, Mary and forever remembered with love and tenderness.

Raymond......your mother spoke of you with such pride. She beamed when she talked about your little family with Sylvia and Gianni. Your med school accomplishments and the fine young man you have become. You will always be her pride and joy.

June......I have never seen two sisters closer than you and Mary........ever. We had a lot of laughs over the years. Those are the times we'll remember. I love you. I'm here.

May God comfort all of you and impress upon your hearts that Mary is and always will be in his loving arms.

Love, Donna

On Earth, Mary was an Angel. Now in Heaven, she must be teaching the flocks some new tricks! What a loving family you all have been. God Bless you all in your saddest moments. My prayers are with you all.

Mary Mary Mary
In childhood we did not understand the gift wrapped up in a greater plan. Time has taught us about the bond of love, and through that love we have chosen friendship. We have learned together, sharing the good times and the bad,and no matter what, there has always been,love. You are my sister always,my friend forever.
Love you with all my heart your Irish twin sister June.

Hey Aunt Mary. It shocks me to know your gone so soon. You weren't just my aunt you were my mother, my friend, my pusher through everything I wanted to accomplish in life. I will never forget the push you gave me on American Idol. You always pushed me to be the next Justin Timberlake :) "Hunny you don't need a golden ticket.. your heart, voice, and drive are your tickets to Hollywood" Driving with Aunt June to auditions in Jacksonville and Aunt June making her famous stop at Arby's :) You made sure I shined like a star in front of all 20,000 people. When the crowd got quiet all I could remember was pushing my way to bring you that Golden Ticket home. I have so many special memories with you all my summers, my school supplies and clothes to get ready for a new year. My trip to California you told me to take and paid for.. with me missing the first week of the new school year. It was most def worth it. Now that your my guardian angel in heaven may you dance above and beyond the clouds and stars. Shine your light on my heart. Come to me in my dreams so we can connect our hearts together again. Stand by my side always and forever and tickle my heart once in a while so I know your still there. May your smile shine big and bright down on all of us as we continue our journey through life until we meet again. May you Rest In Paradise.. and Return If Possible. I love you always and forver. Remember you have two homes now.. one with the Lord and one in my heart. God Bless you :) Love your baby nephew Eric
