Maryann will be deeply missed. She was such a strong young lady and always looked for the good and positive in every situation. I'm going to really miss our talks and her smile. Heaven certainly gained a wonderful angel when she was called home. So, thankful for the time I was blessed to share with her here on earth. Im sure her spirit is looking down on her family and friends and wanting us to know she is not here in the tangible sense, but her spirit will always be with us. So, when we come across a lone feather on the ground in our path- know that - thats Maryann saying "hello".
