In 1984 Mary became my mother in law and for years to come she sweetly always claimed me as her daughter in law. The years of my marriage to her son were some of the happiest days in my life and I will miss her. She was a true blue honest woman who could work circles around most of us. My blessings on her family and those that I know are missing her, too.

Dearest John, Richard, and all of your family members. I've just recently learned of Mary's and Clell's passing and I was so moved and wished I had known sooner. Blessings on you at this time of grief as I know you are still grieving, as I am, the loss of Bobby.
Please if there is anything I can do for any of you at this time, contact me. I'm on Facebook and my email can be provided to you at that contact.
My most heartfelt condolences.
