Mary always had a smile on her face and always treated me so kindly. I remember visiting Port Bolivar as a teen and she would pick crabs while we sat around the table and feasted...she did the hard work and we were the ones who benefited....and boy could she pick crabs, she was amazing to watch! ..I felt a little guilty because it was such a treat and a lot of work...but she said she was happy to do it...and she said it with that lovely smile! xo God bless your sweet soul Mary.
