Mary Ann and I grew up in Atlanta together and lived two doors apart on West Peachtree Street until we started high school at Henry Grady High. I cherish memories of playing with our pre-Barbie dolls in her back yard or mine, celebrating after-Christmas parties (exchanging gifts we didn't want), conspiring under her grandmother's yellow climbing rose, having cokes in Taylor's Drug Store under Velma's watchful eye, and trying to figure out how to be girl detectives. I always hoped we would meet up again, and I am deeply sorry for your loss.
If anyone could contact me and let me know more of what happened to my beloved cousin I would greatly appreciate it. My email is email@example.com. Thank You
I am so sad to learn of Mary Ann's death. She and I worked side by side for 10 years at the Georgia Tech Research Institute, and we had loosely kept up with each other after she and Jay moved to Washington. I was just getting ready to send her a birthday e-card when I saw her obit in the AJC. What a wrench! Although I knew she had been desperately ill during the past couple of years, I thought she was on the mend. Taken too young from this earth, but in the arms of Jesus now. May the Lord watch over Jay and comfort him.
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
