Mary, a beautiful woman and very dear friend of many years. She loved life, & lived it to the fullest. I will always hold on to the beautiful memories of all the great times she had with my Mom & Dad, Millie and Jack, and of course her very dear friend Eleanor. Now the good times begin again, as they welcome Mom into heaven. Mary Ann, such a beautiful daughter who she was so very proud of. My love and prayers are with you and your family. Love, Bobbi Ann
