Grandma Mary may you rest in peace. I have nothing but fond memories of you and our trips to taco bell and time spent together. You always loved me as your own. May peace be with you and your family.

Mary Catherine and Davey, I was so sad to hear about Aunt Mary. She was such a sweet lady. I loved hearing all the crazy stories about her and my Dad's many shenanigans. They were quite a pair. I know you will miss her dearly but I hope you find peace knowing she is in Heaven surrounded by so many people who love her ❤️

Mary & Dave, I know it is hard to let go but know that your mom was met with open arms by almost her entire family. She did so much for so many and always had a smile on her face. Cherish all the wonderful memories and rest assured that she is in a better place! Pat & Peggy
