A beautiful woman, inside and out. One of the greatest, without a doubt.
She set fine examples, and was full of grace.
There was always a smile upon her face.
Mary was a blessing to know.
We're all very sad to see her go.
But God has called her to heaven above.
Her memories live on, all filled with love.
Goodbye to Mary, until we meet again.
I'm both proud and honored, to have called her my friend.
With my deepest sympathy,and prayers for comfort, to all of her family. Sincerely, Rochelle
