Such a wonderful lady and an amazing family. I had the pleasure of staying with the them in Greenwich many years ago and despite the time and distance, the whole family will always have a special place in my heart. I am sad to hear of the passing of Mary and extend my belated condolences to my never forgotten friend Andrea and all her family.

Dear Andrea, Mary Anne, Callie Rose and all of you children and grand children of Mary and Bill
I meant to write this on Friday to let you know that I wouldn't be able to join in the Mass of Christian Burial for Mum because of commitments at my own parish. I wanted very much to pay my little tribute to a lady who was a dear friend, who lived life to the full, with zest and energy, who was was very proud of notching up the years and decades of her life's tally. Your Mum, Mary, was one of a kind.
May I offer my condolences with the assurance of a prayer of thanks for her life. And how can I not remember Dad who did the only portrait of me in existence!
Mary was the first person I met when I joined St. Catherine's Church. We took to each other immediately. When I told her I was a Eucharistic Minister..she knew exactly where I was needed..and practically put me there..It was a joy to see her every week and give her the Eucharist..TV going and all..She knew her mind and she spoke it. I will always remember our time together...her red hair and those red shoes that I have of hers..Peace rest on those who mourn her lose.. Barbara
We will always remember and cherish Aunt Mary Jean's vibrant, warm and loving spirit! We will hold her in our hearts forever. With love and condolences,
Kate, Tim, Malcolm, and Alder (The Donovan-Cook family)
