Not sure what to say?

Mary Sue, I am sorry to read about your Mom's passing. She was always so kind to me and I have many fond memories of time spent at your house. I can't believe it was 50 years ago. With sympathy, Mary Fletcher

I was always so impressed by Mac's wit and dry sense of humor. She was a beautiful and extremely creative woman. She will missed and most fondly remembered.

Mac was my Mother-in-law for 22 years and one of the most admired women in my life. She was very good to me and taught me how to make some great family recipes and awesome bean soup.

Can't tell you how happy I am to have known Mac. We met at Frontier Furniture Galleries. She was a true mentor, Martha Stewart before her time.

With deepest sympathy,
