Bob, I am so sorry for your loss. It has been a long time since we were neighbors, but I still remember the good times I had with Maryanne and you when we did things together back in the eighties. I can’t begin to imagine the huge loss this is for you.

We are so sorry for your loss Bob. Mary Ann was such great supporter of so many groups, Toto, Arts, and of course Green Bay Packers just to name of a few. Her love of antiques is a fond memory for me. RIP Mary Ann, you will be missed.
