    So sorry for your loss. We loved visiting with your mom when she was in the same room with our mom, Loreda Norman. Mary was so sweet and kind. She was always glad to see us. We missed her when she moved to a private room. Her smile and sweet spirit will always be remembered. Having lost Loreda just weeks ago, we know the sorrow of loss but pray you can rejoice in the joy of her homecoming to heaven. May the Lord bless you !
