So sorry to hear of Mary’s passing. She lived a long full life. She was one strong lady. I have many fond memories of her and her family coming over to Florence to visit Mom and Dad. She had such a beautiful smile .I remember her love of animals and music. Our first Siamese cat Cocoa came from her. I am sure you Wendell and family have many fond memories of your mom. She is at peace now with your Dad and Calvin. Hold on to those precious memories because they will comfort you in time. xo
