I am so sorry for your loss. I have known Mary since I was a child and growing up in Baptist Temple. She was one of my Sunday school teachers and she set an example of living a Christian life. She was a kind, sweet, loving woman who was devoted to her church and family. Always had a beautiful smile and was a lovely woman. My prayers are with all of you during this difficult time and hope you can find comfort in recalling all the wonderful memories you have of her.

Aunt Mary was just as beautiful in this picture in her later years as she was in her younger years. She was always so sweet to me every time I saw her. We all need to be the person she was. I know all of you will miss her. Judy Madren Black
