May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived. Mary Lee was such a wonderful person and first cousin. We enjoyed our talks on the phone and my visits with her. She was always laughing and chewing her gum! Everyone loved Mary Lee and she never saw a stranger. A funny thing about her was when a doctor would suggest she get some kind of test, she would tell him, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" She was one of the jolliest people I have ever known and will surely be missed by many. May God fill your hearts with His Grace, Mercy, Peace, and give you Comfort during this difficult time in your lives. Read Psalm 23. My love and blessings always. Mary Lee I love you and will always miss you! :)
