I cherish so many memories with Mary. She was more than my friend, she was my family and my life was blessed just by knowing her. I will forever hang on to those memories and keep them close in my heart. Prayers for Richard, A.B., and Kyle,that God will surround them with Peace and Comfort during this very difficult time.
