I am so saddened to hear of Mary's passing. She was a lovely lady and always so kind. I had not seen her for many years as I moved away from PI. My prayers are with her and her family at this time.

Blessings to all of Mary’s family, as you grieve her death, but also as you commemorate her life. She was a lovely lady. I remember her at Sears in the early 60’s.
