Holly, I am so sad for you and the kids. Mary will be sorely missed by me and many others. I am homebound due to an illness and can't believe I won't be there to hug you, the kids and Sandy. May God comfort your aching hearts. Love Dena

Miss Mary was my drug treatment counselor. She was an absolutely amazing woman who helped me find my value. Within three months of becoming her client my mother passed away. She called me every day for a month to check on me. Weekends too she went above and beyond her job title!! I just want the family to know that she directly impacted my life. She really helped me see that I could live my life sober and be happy even with losing my mother I could stay sober. And I have!! One of the most wonderful things she shared with me how when she seen a cardinal she thought of her mother so now when I see a cardinal I think of mine but Now when I see one I will think of Ms Mary too!!She is amazing and I will miss her dearly!!!

Holly and Kids, your Mother and Grandmother was a wonderful lady. She was the kindest person I have ever known and she is now living her reward. She is now being blessed because of all the ways she blessed others. She was so very proud of each one of yall. Honor her memory in all you do. I pray God will comfort you and give you His peace. She is dancing with the angels and her lighthouse led her home.
