Not sure what to say?

I worked with Mary Ann at Raymond James for several years. She was a joy to work with, always caring & hard working. She loved her family deeply & was a woman of strong faith. My heartfelt sympathy to Art & all Mary Ann’s family.

Our deepest sympathy to the Becker and Haile families. Luis thought the world of Mary Ann as he was able to provide transportation for the family on all those excursions. She was a wonderful person who loved her family deeply. She will be missed. May God bless you all in this difficult time.

I will miss you dear friend and remember all our exciting bus trips and especially Girls Night Out.
Love, Judy
