I know Aunt Mary Ann is happy at her new home in heaven. I can’t help but feel that if only I had taken the opportunity to know her better, I would be a significantly different person. My she rest in peace.

Mary Ann was a wonderful, kind person who loved her family, her church, her friends and her job. She loved to give to others–at Christmas she always made sure we got our chocolates! Mary Ann was very special and will be missed.
