Mary made such a difference in my life as a teenager. She, Barry, Linda and Donna were family to me. Mary always told me what she thought, listened when I needed it, and her words of wisdom still ring true in my ears. I am forever grateful. Rest In Peace.

Donna, Brian and family,
We are very sorry to hear about "Aunt" Mary's passing. Can never forget how caring she was and her never ending smile; whether it was swimming at aunt Mary's and uncle Barry's pool or stopping by the bakery. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, also sorry to hear about Linda's passing last month.
