    What a terrible loss for her family and friends. It just happened so quickly. I will miss her greatly.

  8. I’m very sorry for the loss. A couple years ago, we each had no idea we had more siblings. It was surreal to learn Mary Beth was my half sister and even more surreal to get a chance to meet her in person. She was hilarious, feisty, loving and just a pleasure to be around.

    I’m sorry I can’t be there in person but my wife and I have donated to the American Heart Association in her memory.

    Much love to all,

    James & Tammy Jackson

  9. Larry, I am so sorry for your loss. I am Mary Beth’s cousin by DNA. I wish I had got to know her better. Again I am so sorry for your loss. With love, Medetta
