Not sure what to say?

So sorry for your loss John. Mary was a special person and I know she will be missed.

John and family, I am saddened to hear that Aunt Mary has passed. Hoping that your memories of her and knowing that she is at peace with Uncle Bill will be a comfort to you. Dean

Dear John and family, So sorry for your loss. Mary was a Miriam circle friend of mine and I fell blessed to have been her friend. One of the things we shared was that we both had birthdays right before Christmas. She will be missed. Arloa

Dear John and family,

I am so sorry for your loss!

I was just thinking of your mother last Thursday, as I was struggling to write a piece, and remembering her encouragement and sage advice. (Really!)

Her unique combination of wit (oh, she was a hoot, even to this teenager) and wisdom will be missed.

All the best to you and yours,
Kris DeVries (one of many)

John and Family, So sorry for your loss. Loved both my of your parents and will continue to cherish my memories of them. Sending love and prayers to you during this difficult time.

Dear family, I was so sorry to learn about Mary's passing. I got to know her (and Robbie) through Holland League of Women Voters. I recall both of them being such strong supporters of LWV and our mission, they were eager to serve on the board, volunteer for voter forums etc., and observe local public boards. A few years ago when we facilitated granting Lifetime Membership to Mary and a few other of our strong long-time supporters, I called to her to tell her about the honor, and she was...

My condolences.

I am sorry to learn about the passing of your Mother, John. I have fond memories of Mary and our time together in the English Department at W.O.H.S. I still have tons of Pachysandra in my landscape that Mary shared from your backyard on Natchez..and now I'm sharing it with others. Please know you and your family are in my thoughts.

John and family: sorry to hear about your mom. She was a wonderful woman with lots of talent.I will always remember the support and encouragement she and your dad gave me with the swim team!! She was an asset to the teaching profession and West Ottawa.
