God blessed me with your friendship, I'm sure you are in heaven. I have never met another person like you, you were everything a person needed as a friend. We will miss you so much. I will miss your phone calls and your visits to my home. I'm sorry I never brought Violet to meet you but you can be sure she will know about you. RIP my dearest friend. God blesed you with a wonderful family, or was it the other way around? They were blessed with you.

We were very young when the Lord put Mary and Lew into our lives. She was always so very kind to a young family. She was especially kind to our children, as she loved kids. We've thought of her often throughout the years and wondered what had become of her. Please accept our deepest condolences, but rest assured, she's in a much better place. Kids, get in touch with us. We's love to hear from you. Our love always, Mary & Tony
