I will truly miss Mary. From the first day I met her in 1964, I knew God had put an angel on this earth. She was so kind and gentle It is not the permanent loss of a dear woman but the tender sense of sadness that comes in saying good-bye to someone we love. May today’s sorrow give way to the peace and comfort of God’s love. Mary was an angel on this earth and God has taken her home. You were loved here and in my heart, I will remember you always.
Aunt Mary was a great lady! She was a blast to spend time with. I have such good memories spending time with her at her house when we were little, and we also had a great trip to New Mexico! I will miss her dearly but I know she is dancing and celebrating with joy!
