Not sure what to say?

Aunt MaryAnn was kind and thoughtful. It was an honor to have known her.

Truly a loving and caring individual, Mary Ann will be missed dearly by everyone who knew her.

I worked for the Blues many years ago at the Dairy Queen on Seneca. The whole family were good people and very nice to me. I'm sorry to see this about your Mom and also was unaware of Yvonne and Johnny's passing may you all find peace in knowing they are at rest peacefully and watching over you.

Our condolences to the family of this wonderful human being. A wonderful soul, friendly neighbor, and helped us without being asked in what was almost a terrible tragedy. Thank you Mary for being so wonderful.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Blue children and grandchildren. Mary Ann was a beautiful lady whose life exemplified love and thoughtfulness. I always felt at home in their house and anytime I was around her. She will be missed.
