    I was so very sorry to hear of Mary’s passing away. I have such great memories of her. We always had a good time when we were together. Remember the reunions Jaye when you and Chad would run to be the first in line for the food. Those were good times. I will be keeping all of ou in my thoughts and prayers. “

  9. Though it has been 3 weeks today, my heart still hurts from losing my little sister Mary. Though we had been far apart in distance for so long, we never lost our closeness for each other. So many funny, crazy memories of her, though her love of her family and friends will be forever her legacy. I know time will help be the healer but I will never stop missing her….God is my only comfort in the loss of her.
