Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. We won’t be able to be at the service as we will be out of town for a few days. Such a nice picture of Mary and she looks so happy. Seeing her picture reminds me of Aunt Gladys.

From Linda Wiggins...

Mary was such a kind and gentle soul, always fun to be around. I will always remember LHS football games, the visits we had on the porch of the little house across the street and the greetings I got when I walked into Dillon’s! Mary you will be missed. RIP
