    Aunt Mary I loved your gentle nature and your big beautiful smile. Never was there a day as I was a young child till now that I did not see your smile. A very talented and crafty woman and homemaker.

    To the rest of our family we truly know what a precious gem she was. May you rest in peace in Heaven.
