John and I send you our thoughts during this sad time. I remember meeting your mother and thinking she was so full of energy and you have inherited that from her. She had a great sense of humor and a strong will! I am so sad we won't be there with you during this time. We will be thinking of you and the family tomorrow. All our love Ann and John

To Marys' Family. On behalf of my family and I please accept our most heartfelt condolences on Marys' passing. Her years of going to Bingo and the enjoyment she brought to others will not soon be forgotten. Her and Francis were a beautiful couple who got so much pleasure of doing for others. Mary will always be remembered for putting others ahead of herself. Gone but never forgotten. May our thoughts and prayers give you strength during these difficult days. Buddy, Liz Mosher & Family
