    I am very sorry for the loss of Mary. She was so fun to be with and always acted young and playful. She made me feel that I could do anything at any age, and she taught me how to live my life like her. She passed too young for her age, she passed too early. I will never forget you Mary, you brought light into our lives and taught us to smile and act happy even if we weren’t so happy in our own lives. Mary, You are missed by so many, Rest in Peace my little friend.
