Condolences

Karyl, Sue, Amy and the rest of your family, I am so sorry for your lost. I didn't know her long but I sure did grow very fond of her in the short time I did. I am so grateful for my time with her, for our chats. I will treasure those memories forever. Praying for all of you.

My deepest sympathy to Ben, Amy, and Tim as well as her family. May she be at peace and reunited with Randy.

My deepest sympathy to Ben, Amy, and Tim as well as her siblings and family. May Mary rest in peace and be reunited with Randy!

Karyl, Sue and Steve,

I have such fond memories of Mary and you, Steve, coming back to the the apartment (719) while I lived there. Mary and you rescued Toffee who became my first cat and really began my love of cats. It was an "omen" of Mary's future in caring for lost and/or homeless animals. In the intervening years I have on occasion run into Mary and was always happy to have the opportunity to connect with her and ask about all of you. My sincere condolences to you. She was a truly good and sweet person. By the way, if you have had contact with Sarah Miles at the funeral home, she is my daughter.

I am so sorry Steve. Prayers of peace for your family.

So sorry for your loss wonderful lady
