Not sure what to say?

Jason, You do not know me, but your parents were 'down the road' neighbors to me and my new husband on Cedar Rock Circle over 40 years ago.

Both of them were excellent friends and were always willing to help two 'green' newlyweds.

My daughter is now 40, but let me tell you what your mom did when she was born. I will never forget the afternoon she brought, as a present for my new born Baby Girl, the prettiest little blue gingham dress! It wasn't long 'till the camera...

I knew Mary from Lower Creek School. She was a wonderful lady. I loved to talk with her and enjoyed the goodies that she made for the holidays. I am sad for your family, but know that she is in Heaven and having no more pain.

So sorry for your loss,Mary was a very special person,and a good friend

David and Jason, you have my most sincere condolences on the loss of your Mary . . she was a joy to know! Quite a lady!!!

It has been my honor and privilege to know Mary and your family for the last 30 years. From living with her through the surprise and joy of pregnancy, birth of Jason, the many pictures she proudly shared over the years, through David's illness and now her own journey through cancer, I feel like I have been part of her life. I will miss her much. David and Jason, be strong in her memory and the knowledge of how much she loved you.

Mary was such a good woman. I worked with her for many years at Lower Creek. I always enjoyed working with her. Her Christmas and Thanksgiving peanut butter fudge was so good and I enjoyed being able to buy it. She will be missed. I will pray for your family.

David and Jason,,,,,,sorry for your loss,,,,,,,I've known Mary for 46 years,,,,,she was my sister-in-law, but as close as any sister I could ever have had. She lost the battle with cancer,,,,but she won the war. I will never see her again this side of Heaven, but one day I will meet her on that Beautiful shore. Anne Chester
