    How fitting the mention of the love Auntie Mary (Little Mary) had for dancing. For one on my fondest childhood memories was grown ups getting together at Elm st. moving the coffee table and dancing the night away….Oh those were the days…Auntie Mary will be remembered for her beauty and impeccable style…the love she shared with all…fond memories will be in our hearts always. Nephew Babe
