Not sure what to say?

It's been a few months since i last saw your beautiful face and you took your last breath to go home to be with daddy and be pain free.... Momma, You are sorely missed and I love you to the moon and back!!!

Jerry & I will miss Mary very much. Even though many miles separated us, we were grateful for the times we could get together. Mary always made us feel welcome in her home, with delicious dinners and giving us time to meet with our nieces and nephews. We also enjoyed traveling with her and Harvey on a few occasions -- special times! They visited with us in Santa Barbara a few times, which we appreciated.

Growing up Mary was always a kind spirit and I remember her laughing and teaching me to play a few bars on the piano when Nicki and I were kids. As adults going to Claddaugh for dinner and sharing laughs. She will be greatly missed. Many thoughts, prayers and hugs to the entire Wood family.

My deepest condolences to the entire Wood family. Mary was a great lady and I was proud to call her "mom" for a time. The times I spent with her were precious and I will always remember her.

Mary was my best friend for over 40 years and I will miss her dearly until we are reunited in heaven. Her deep love of Jesus was inspiring and her love for her husband and family never waivered. She could sing like an angel, play the piano beautifully, listen to others with compassion, compose songs that worshipped her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and enjoyed going out to lunch with friends. She was the epitome of love, compassion, forgiveness, and mercy toward others. I am blessed to...

So sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. She was such a good friend to my mom for over 40 years! May you take comfort in knowing she is with her Savior and enjoying all the wonderful benefits of living a life for God. your old friend and classmate from IHM,

Please accept my deepest sympathies.
