so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother, Mary our thoughts are with you

Mary was a sweet neighbor to our family from 1955 until my mother's departure from the neighborhood in 2007. During my annual visits to Wooster, I would sit with her in her front yard and we would simply talk about a variety of topics. Her blue eyes lit up whenever we spoke of her beloved Jerry. She led a beautiful life and as my mother developed dementia, Mary would watch out for her. So hard to believe she was only 29 years old when I first met her. Her flaming red hair turned to grey but her blue eyes maintained that friendly twinkle. God bless Mary and Jerry and their extended family.

Carol I was sorry to hear of your Mom's Passing. She always enjoyed it when I would come to The Avenue to sing. She would dance in her wheelchair. She enjoyed the music so much and was always a pleasure to be around. You all all in my prayers.

So very sorry to hear of Mom’s passing. My thoughts & prayers are with you, she was a lady with a big heart.

I did your Mom's hair at The Ave.We really clicked.I really enjoyed her. Will miss her.
