I was so fortunate to have met and shared a portion of life together with Mary who is 13 years older than I am. I first met her in my childhood home when I was a very young teenager. I had always known about her, but that was our first meeting. Later, still a teenager, I visited Mary, Woody, and Scott (a little bitty baby, oh, so cute) and their respective families. All of you treated me like a princess and I enjoyed everyday of the visit. Later as an adult, my husband and I visited all three of you in your home where I felt very welcomed again. This time Mary and I were able to share some stories and photographs along with heartfelt discussions about our lives. Of course, we shared some good food and family meetings to catch up on the last 35 years or so. These memories will stay with me as long as I live.
Woody and Scott, I am so grateful that Mary had both of you to love her, care for her, and honor her wishes toward the end of her life. She loved you two so very, very much. You were a happy family for so many years because you loved one another. Continue to carry on that love that she instilled in you as that will be your memorial to honor Mary.
God bless you,
