Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of sorrow. I have great memories of making candy and cookies with aunt Mary, and going along with them on their many road adventures. Mary will be missed by all that knew her.

I have such fond memories of sitting with Aunt Mary and her Mom. They would be happily chatting back and forth, neither of them making a sound. She loved her Mom , and everyone else she met.
