I will miss you Aunt Mary!
“This world and our family has lost a woman who lived life on her own terms and brought laughter to all who had the privilege of spending time with her. Her zest for life and ability to call it like she saw it was uncanny... She was an honest, strong willed woman who could make you laugh till you cried. WE were truly blessed to have her on this earth for 90 years. She will be missed. A piece of our hearts died with her...”
