  1. candleI will miss Mary clearing the table at Deanna and Steven’s house.
    I will miss her smile and phone calls.
    Mom was very sad when I told her yesterday, she wanted to send flowers and wanted to know how Jim’s doing.
    You’re all in my prayers.

  2. I will miss my Aunt Mary very much. A beautiful funny sassy lady who loved her family and friends very much. A well lived life surrounded by people who loved her including me. 😇❤️😇❤️
