When I first met Mary
Erika was introducing me to her Family as her boyfriend..... she immediately knew I was gonna be the one to sweep Erika off her feet and be her husband. She welcomed me into her family with loving arms . She told it how she saw it pulled no punches and spared no feelings and I loved her for that.
She was a great person and I am proud to have known her over the past 8 years she meant the world to my wife and I and she will be missed.

love you Mary.
