I will remember Mary's twinkling eyes, her beautiful smile, her manicured nails and her ability to pull together multiple shades of purple in any room and make it work fabulously. But mostly I will remember her laugh. She was so special. Unique. I pray that all the wonderful memories you have of Mary will keep you smiling until, once again, you are united as a family and home with our Savior. God Bless. Sue Pace
I am very sorry to hear of your loss. While there is little that can be said or done to take away the pain you're experiencing, may you turn to our loving Creator and "God of all comfort" to help you cope during this difficult time. ( 2 Corinthians 1:3,4)
Dear Jessica and Jenni...May God bless you with your every need, as you mourn the loss of your step-Mom. My prayers are with you, all. May He give you strength, love and courage, as you face these days ahead and blessings of happy memories, to give you laughter and smiles. Thinking of you...
Very sorry for your loss. Deepest sympathy to the family.
