My condolences to you Shirley and to all of your family. Mary always held a special place in my heart and I always enjoyed taking Mom up to see her when I was home. She was a very special lady whose heart was bigger than life. She helped so many people and for not other reason than they needed a helping hand. She never looked for anything from anyone. I loved her to bits. You are in my thoughts and prayers. xo Debby
