Reading Mary's obituary I learned so much or about her. What a very special lady.. such a full life that has touched so many. She will surely be missed, but thinking about the reunions behind heavans gate will be joyous. I feel blessed to have met Mary and shared her birthday with her. God bless you Mary, and strength to the remaining family to get through this difficult time. ❤️🙏😇
