Auntie Mary, so many sweet memories. Many a summer day at your house, spending time with Donna. You in the garden, family dinners in the holidays. Sunday afternoons with Grandma T. I remember your kindness heling my Mom when she was ill. You and Auntie and Martha teaching me Canasta. So much to smile about when I remember you.
