    Dougie, Deb, Danny, Jimmy and family –

    I have many, many happy memories of “Auntie” Mary! She would immediately light up the room with her presence, and she always had some great stories to tell from her childhood.

    She will be missed immensely. I am so sorry for your pain at this time. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    xoxo

    Jimmy, Danny & Doug, I will always remember how wonderful your parents were to me all those years ago. Your mom treated me like one of her own, especially after I lost my own mother. I will never forget all the crazy and fun times at the lake. Your mom was one special lady. I’m sure she is causing quite the uproar in heaven!
