    Mary was my dearest friend. We shared flower arranging, decorating, fun times with JJ in Osterville and at Crystalbeach. Mary just had a zest for the beauty of life and especially her family. She was so proud of you all. Mary always gave her very best for the job at hand and was a talented and reliable hairdresser. God blessed Mary in so many ways . She was very close to The Lord and thankful for her blessings. I was proud to have been her friend . She will live in my heart forever..
    I’m sorry to miss her service but I’m just home from surgery. Love and prayers are with you today. Love, Cat
