So sorry for your loss. I know your hurt, as I lost my mom, July 4, 2015. Our prayers are with all of you. Stephen Ross, your beautiful words meant so very much to dad (Jack Dreher). Thank you for taking time to acknowledge him. I pray for peace for all of your family.

So sorry to read of the passing of Mary. When I worked at Gardens and did her hair, we had many conversations about her life and family. I'm sure she will be greatly missed.
