Not sure what to say?

I am so sorry to hear the news about Mary. She was one of the first people I met when I started playing at KTC. She was a formidable opponent and a true sportswoman. I will keep her family in my prayers.

Mary was an inspiration to everyone on the tennis court and didn't for a moment think her age was a barrier to enjoying tennis! I loved her spunk and zest for life! I only knew her through tennis, but she was such a neat lady. My thoughts and prayers are with all who knew and loved her. May your memories of her provide you comfort. RIP Mary and hope you are playing tennis in the big Wimbledon in heaven!

Sorry to hear of your loss. Wishing you peace and comfort.

May God bring comfort to my cousins and their families on the loss of a mom, grandma and aunt and friend. We will all meet again. God bless you all.

I loved being on the tennis court with Mary--her enthusiasm was infectious. She joined us in Charleston for a girls' tennis trip one year and received a "bravo" from Marion Bartoli, Wimbledon champion, who was practicing on the next court, for a spectacular shot that Mary made. She was always happy on the court and never gave up. I will miss her and wish I could be at her funeral.
