I was 16 years old in 1980 when I met Mary ( and Dell) when i started working at Ross Care Center. Mary was a wonderful woman and friend. Over the past 40 years I have ran into her from time.to time, and she always greeted me with a hug and kiss. I was saddened when I got the call from Dell. Walk with the angels sweet Mary. You will be missed terribly!!
