Pleas let me express my deepest condolences to Mary's family. I had the pleasure of working with Mary along with many of my high school friends at Kmart in the late 90s. She was always so pleasant and fun. We loved to joke with her and we all loved her. She was a beautiful person inside and out. I met your father as well he was a gentleman. I occasionally drive by there homestead and wonder how she was doing. I am very happy to see she spent her final days with her family in Florida.

Adele and Susan so very sorry for your loss. I was just thinking about your mother and I pick up the paper and saw that she passed. She is probably so happy to be with your father again. She was a wonderful woman and I always enjoyed being with her whether it was at dance recitals or working at KMart. Prayers for you and your families.
