Not sure what to say?

I met Mary at the Washtenaw Medical Care Facility in 1969
and it was soon raised. Staff lost jobs and I needed someone for childcare and Mary took on the job for my two children. She was dependable and great with the kids.
She was spirited and self-directed. We appreciated her greatly and remember her kindly. Thank you Mary for the best times. Justine Bykowski
