I am so sorry to hear of Mary's passing. I volunteered with Mary in RCIA for a few years and I know she was very passionate about her faith. She also was very encouraging to me when I adopted my daughter. She helped me by writing a letter for my homestudy when I was just beginning the adoption process. She also hosted my daughter's "baby" shower. I miss talking to her about God, raising children and just every day life.

God bless Mary and your family,
Kathy Montano
