I miss you more then words can say. You are constantly on my mind and I think about all the great times we had together. You were a wonderful Mother and an even better Nanny. You will forever hold a place in our hearts and be missed with ever passing day. Please tell Dad we said hello and we miss him too. You both thought me so many life lessons and left me with so many wonderful memories. I will try my best not to ask why because I know you are happy now and your heart is no longer broken. I love you and Dad both! Until we meet again I will hold you in my heart!
On December 27th, 2011 with tears in my eyes I hugged you and whispered to you that you made him a better man. Everyone could see the effect you had on him. Allen didn't need money, houses, or cars to make him happy. Allen needed Mary.
Mary was not a stranger when she became part of our family. She was confident and seemed unshakable. She had a highly developed sense of humor and you could often see her shake with laughter while nobody else was yet smiling. Soon we were all laughing too.
Today I remembered the laughter, the family, how she helped us, supported us, raised us. She made Allen happy, so that made us all happy.
Today I remember the laughter but I feel the pain of loss. I know one day the pain will dull so that eventually I can remember and smile without crying, but not today. Today my eyes are red and my nose is running, the pain wins today. I miss him, I miss her. She made us happy.
Praying for all of you.
May God bless you during this most difficult time.
Sending thoughts and prayers to the family. May God bless all of you during this time.

Mary you will be greatly missed,you where a wonderful step mother! I am very thankful to have had you in my life!
I am in shock. I just found out today and don't know what to say. I will miss waiting on her and her telling me stories about softball games or XBox games. Or she always said have to find a Motel to stay at. She was a wonderful person and I know you girls will miss her and the Grandkids will. You all are in my prayers and I love you all. Take care of one another and if you need anything call me.
Nanny, I can't put into words how much you mean to me. You and Allen have been such an important part of my life. Your love and your strength have always been such a comfort to me. I could always count on you to be there to listen, encourage, and set me straight when I needed you. I know the two of you are smiling down on us all and watching over us, always. I love you and I miss you so much!

She helped me so much at work the past 25 years and we talked about me retiring and going out to eat lunch together when I retired. I will really miss her and I know you will she talked about both of you every time we talked or saw each other.
