My Mother chose Mary Ann to be my Godmother when Mary Ann was only 15 years old, but my Mom saw her stability and awareness of family values. Family always came first with her. I never saw her in a bad mood. Even with the many tragedies that she experienced. She always remained faithful to God's will. The last time I saw her was a few months ago. I was amazed at how sharp her memory was. I loved hearing stories about her Dad's tavern and how he made her the "youngest barmaid" in the world. I hope she bowls many 300 games in heaven's bowling alley. Ron Schaefer
