Sorry to hear of Mary's passing. We enjoyed having her (and Ed) as our neighbors, and the breakfasts and lunches we shared.
Mary had a smile and good word for us each time we saw her.
When we visited her at then nursing home, she always knew who we were and was happy to see us. She had stories to tell us that would help her reminisce and would bring a smile to us all. Will miss her smiling face.
