Dear Mary, I have had the words of "Come Spring" running through my head since you went to be with our Lord & Savior...your call to me at the hotel in Ok City, OK was my last chance to share these words with you: "Before the roses bloom in my garden, I'll be gathering flowers in a better land, Before the fields are green, Before the robin sings, I'll be gone to be with Jesus, Come Spring....I know we'll meet when God gathers flower, Come Spring." Until then, I will miss our phone calls! Love always, Your Sister

Michelle and Dad Adams. I am so sorry to hear about Mary's death. My prayers are with you and the rest of the family. I could not believe when I heard the news. I still remember her beautiful smile and how she would always laugh when I would go over to the house on Gill Ave. Alot of good memories. Will not forget her ever. Love you all.

I miss you so much nana but ur now a angel in heaven life will never be the same :-Love always your "angel"

God saw you getting tired
and a cure was not to be
so he put his arms around you
and whispered,
"Come to Me"

With tearful eyes we watched you
and saw you pass away
and although we love you dearly
we could not make you stay.

A Golden heart stopped beating
hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best
