I offer my condolences as to Mary's passing but also for the very difficult years that proceeded it.
Mary was a very special friend. I just dropped over at her house because I had significant issue that I thought she might offer me a sympathetic shoulder and comfort. Mary was unbelievable wonderful to me, only an acquaintance at the time, in my time of need.
We then developed our friendship and had a lot of fun together as a group of friends from the AWC that were without partners, going to show and dinner. Mary was fun, I loved her way of joking and enjoyed her attention and ensuring we all got good and properly prepared food when dining out. I am smiling as I think about Mary in my interactions with her.
I will remember Mary with great fondness.
