Connie and Romey my heart goes out to you as you again are faced such a loss to your family. I'll always remember Mary Ann calling Connie peanut when we were kids, she even called me it once, I thought that was so cute, I call my own kids peanut, probably got that from her. I also remember how available she was, as my own mom was a busy single mom that did not have alot of time for extras Mary Ann did and shared her love not only for her own children, but friends too. I remember one year it was raining when it was time to pick up girlscout cookies and i had no one to pick me up and she brought me home, again,kindness like that is never forgotten. I didn't think much about it as a kid, probably because that was just the way it was, but she probably felt quite sorry for me. I'm learning as i go on in this life that we are put on this earth for a purpose and God puts us in touch with people for a reason. Some to be our family that we know deeply and others maybe for a brief moment in time because that is exactly what his plan is. Though my childhood is where i knew Mary Ann, she still touched my life and i am blessed to have known her and to have experience her love of family and friends. I am deeply sorry for your loss, i know she is with Linda and the rest of your family in heaven and all suffering has ceased. May you feel God's love amid all your pain.
Once a friend, always a friend, Marcia (Sadowski) Lodel
