Mary Evelyn Rice (Grimes)
Mary the Angel
The Lord called and said He wanted His angel back!
Mary was the most loving person to all she touched and because of that she was most loved by all who knew her.
She created a beautiful family and embraced all who entered her circle with love. You never heard a negative/spiteful word from her. She taught us how to love and give that love freely. She gave us a proper 'so long'.
We are bountifully blessed to have shared this time with her on earth. I will miss her on many levels: her Christmas card being the first one to arrive after the Thanksgiving holidays = sitting at our table at the YMCA annual dinner each March - running into Target as she scoured the clearance racks. But most of all I will miss her quiet loving spirit. She leaves a void in our hearts - but OH what a glorious day it will be when we join her again!
P.S. I've already picked up two pennies from the ground!
