  1. Our deepest sympathy is extended to each of you. We loved Mary as the generous, fun loving, hard working person that most of us could never keep up with in a million years. The Order of the Eastern Star and the Masonic Group too thought the world of Mary and appreciated all that she did without complaint!

  2. Don and grover my prayers and thoughts go out to the both of you and your families. I was so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother and know what you are going through as i lost my mom last year. You both will be in my prayers.
