We are grateful and blessed that we got to meet your mother. We will never forget the time we got together with Victor at the restaurant. She brought such joy to the table. Thank you also for being such good friends.

Aunt Mary Lee will forever be remembered as my little Aunt in the giant Cadilac who loved to go garage saling with us. Her joy and laughter filled a room with love.

I will always remember Aunt Mary Lee as one of the sweetest, kindest little ladies around. I smile to think of her infectious sense of joy and wonder at all the things and people she encountered -- she had the special ability to help others see the 'marvels,' all around and within them. SHE was a marvel!
