I had the pleasure of knowing "Ms. Mary" from many years of employment at the Three Rivers Commercial. It was always a pleasure to see her come through the door! She always brought some sunshine inside :) Prayers for all of her family & friends.

I'm glad I got to see Mary at the Community Center getting ready for Bingo, Tuesday. I knew she made it back from down south safe. As others, I'm saddened to read of her untimely death. She was a good woman. I'd gone to school with Carol. I got to know Mary and the other girls on N. Douglas Ave. when I had a lawn service in the 80's. Then Mary, and Mary her neighbor, started going to HealthTRAC when I worked there. And recently I've seen Mary and Myrtle at the COA waiting to do Bingo after the AFEP class on Tuesdays. Many folks are grieved at this time. May all share your grief with Our Creator and He's the one that can calm hearts and ease all the emotions we're feeling now. Thelma, Myrtle, and Carol you're in my thoughts. I send my sympathy. Sincerely, Cathy Taylor

Our deepest condolences to Mary's family and friends, we share in your loss. Little Mary as she was known in our little park in LaBelle, Fl. was our next door neighbor and the sweetest lady any one would want to live next to you. In the eight years we wintered together we spent many wonderful hours going to morning exercises, line dancing, playing Bingo and sharing a glass of wine at the end of the day. She was an inspiration to us younger folks. We will certainly miss her next winter but will cherish many happy memories .

We will all miss Mary, seeing her walk up for the mail, and she really enjoyed the Pop corn parties. She always had a smile and a greeting for everyone. We all looked for he to return each year. We Remember the good things.
