Condolences Left For Mary Orlet

    Mary was a kind and helpful person. She will be greatly missed at DRS, and my prayers go out to her family and close friends.

    Stephen Webb, St. Louis, Missouri,


    My condolences to the family upon the passing of Mary. Like I will, may you always hold fond memories of her life with you. Not only was Mary a co-worker, she was also a friend. We shared many talks together about her love for animals and her trips hiking and going to the Smokey Mountains. I still chuckle when I think about the chicken(s). She will be deeply missed.
