Mary was truly one of the kindest, most tender people I have ever met. She was a mentor in the fight against breast cancer; she was a survivor in every way possible; she was gentle and calm; she showed love to others in the simplest, most natural ways; she loved her boys, more than anything. There is nothing more admirable than a mother who would move the earth for her children, and that is what Mary was. She was a companion and guide to me, but more importantly, to my son, who adored her. Mary lived a life that shared the love of Jesus in the most basic of ways, by helping others, by listening to others, by loving others. Her loss will leave an enormous empty place in our lives, but we will follow her example and move forward in love and faith. The heavens are now full with your love, Dear Friend.
My condolences to Mary’s family. Mary was my daughter’s big sister through Big Sisters and Brothers when she lived in Huntington Beach. She went above and beyond for Skylar even taking her home to Milwaukee for a white Christmas. I am sure my daughter would not have grown into the wonderful woman she is without Mary’s influence.
