Mary and I have been friends for many years. We had gone on a cruise together and she had invited me to Vistana many times. We meet at the old Goddard Hospital and became fast friends. There isn't a better friend.
Mary would message me that God wasn't answering her prays,she desperately wanted to go home. God answered her prays and took her home with Him. Rest in Peace my dear friend.
