  1. Today and always, may loving memories bring you peace, comfort, and strength.

  2. Mary was a good friend to me,. I hated to see her leave Lake Shore Estates. Mary was kind and loved people. She loved her family and talked about them all the time. She loved Zachary so much. She loved it when he came to see her. She did not like to have people see her when she was in so much pain. I love you Mary and I know you are with Joe and you feel complete again. I will miss you my dear friend but this is not good bye it is, see you later I know you are going to be with Joe where you have wanted to be ever since I have known you we will meet again where there is only peace and no pain. Love Carolyn
