- Mary was my neighbor some years ago when we lived in the 12th Street Apartments. What a wonderful neighbor. I can still see Mary's little black dog take her for a walk over to the adjacent field to take care of business. She didn't miss a day getting her mother so the two of them could enjoy a meal at Sprouts. Know that you the family are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. God Bless!

- To the family of Mary, I offer my condolences. My thoughts & prayers are with you at this difficult time.
