    We remember Mary fondly, she was a great neighbor with a great sense of humor and a generous heart. Her kindness was only outdown by her Irish stuborness which made her both a great neighbor and a strong individual.

    She will be missed, but never forgotten; the mark she left on our family is one that always brings a smile to our face…..Keep watching over us Mary, and tell Ernie we said Hi.

    I was so sorry to hear of Auntie Mary’s passing. Although I haven’t seen her in quite a while my last visit with her will be remembered fondly.Unfortunately, I know how the loss of a mother, aunt, sibling,affects us. But over time I relized the influence of that loved one helps us to become the people we are today. Let time help you to remember why you loved her and more importantly why she loved you. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.May she rest in peace in the spirit of others who loved and passed before her.

    Nana/Mimi: you will be remembered fondly. Your bluntness still makes me laugh when I think of all the conversations we had over the years. I just know Grampy is hollering “May” in heaven looking for you! When you get together, I hope you have a mean game of SCAT and that you never run out of change. You and Gramp were a blast to travel with, and I will remember our triple room in Niagara Falls, our trip to Montreal, our trip to Vegas and our trips to see you with wonderful memories to make me smile even when I’m sad that you are no longer with us. I love you.
