    Uncle Jim Jimmy and Becky, My wife Erin and I would like to pass along our heart felt condolences. There isnt any or enough words in the English language to give you comfort with the loss of such a sweet wonderful aunt wife and mother. Only God has that ability. Aunt Mary is in a much better place now. She’s with mom and aunt jeanie talking about the good ol days. Just remember one day you will see her again as I will my mom. One thing always looked forward to is coming to Florida to see everyone or get excited when yall came to visit. I’m really sorry I wont be able to attend the service on Tuesday but I have everyone one in my thoughts and prayers and I love everyone very much. I was extremely fortunate to have her as an aunt.

    Ms.Mary was a wonderful woman & great neighbor. If she was outside when I was making my rounds, I would stop and talk with her and when she called, we had great conversation and she used to make me laugh and would put a smile on my face & brighten my day. I was very thankful for her & always looked forward to talking with her, I’m really going to miss her. Prayers for the family, love you Ms.Mary
