    My condolences and prayers to all of Mary’s family! Mary was my best friend from first grade and all the way through our years in Bingman Elementary School in Beaumont. We lost touch some time in high school, and I have looked for her in the past few years. I am so sorry she is gone and so sorry that you have lost her. I remember her as a wonderful friend. Blessings to you all.

    Mary was the best sister anyone could have. She was a true lover of people and was loved by anyone she met. She had a rough life but that didn’t get her down. She’ll be missed but I know I’ll see her again. She loved Jesus and was true believer.
