Not sure what to say?

I just heard of her passing the other day. I have been Mary's hairstylist for years and came to her house to do her color and cut. I will miss her so much. Prayers to her family and deepest condolences. I wish I heard about this sooner. I would've attended her services. God bless you, Mary. It was a pleasure knowing you.

She was always positive despite her medical condition. She was looking forward to a kidney donor. What a tragedy that the procedure took her life.

Her death still doesn't seem real to me. During her life she was incredibly kind and it was rare not to see her in a cheerful mood. She also went to great lengths to take care of my brother and I. It is needless to say that she will sorely be missed.

My deepest sympathy to Mary's family,
I worked with Mary at OPT and will always remember her smile, she was a warm wonderful lady.
