Thinking of you all this week. Aunt Mary was such a dear, sweet lady. I know she will be greatly missed. I am so sorry I will not be able to be there. I am in Florida for the week.

How truly blessed I was to share part of my life with Mary such a wonderful lady that loved to smile and laugh and always share the love of the Lord in her presence! Mary's greatest love was her family and church! Sweet Mary I will always miss you but you will always be a big part of my heart until we see each other again in heaven with our sweet Jesus on the right hand side of our Heavenly Father God bless you!
