    Mary was a kind and wonderful person. She was always caring and giving and a joy to be around. My mother, I know, thought of her as a sister not just a cousin and they were dear friends. It is so sad to see the end of an era of a group of cousins that were so full of life and enjoyed every minute of it. Patrice, my thoughts are with you, I know how difficult this time is, but I know she will always remain in your heart and I hope that will give you some peace and closure.
    Love, Janice
