Barry and Becky and family,

I don't have words that will make a difference after this devastating loss you have endured. Mary truly was one of a kind. You always knew what she thought and you always knew where you stood.
May the love of Mary wrap around you like a hug from heaven and may you hear her laughter and feel her up beat spirit forever in your heart.

Gone way too soon NEVER forgotten.

I know you are at peace. Today you were laid to rest. I was unable to attend the services, but thought of you all day.
May you rest in the arms of the Lord until we all meet again!

Dear Barry, Becky & Family

I was so sorry to hear of Mary's passing. I'm remembering the fun we had in our single days. Then you found your wonderful husband Barry. We kinda lost touch but always sent each other a note in our Christmas cards. We wanted to get together and had all good intentions, but it was never to be. I hope you are now at peace and in no more pain. You were a good friend. Go with God my friend. I'll always remember our good times together.

Barry and all family who loved MaryEllen,
Dave and I are so sorry you had to experience this great loss. We could not help but to remember how matter of fact Mary was each time we spoke with her, right to the point with whatever the subject matter was. And funny as hell. She was admired while here and will be missed dearly.

Aunt Mary,
Holiday dinners just won't be the same without your witty sense of humor, your contagious laugh and your delicious baked beans. Although you were taken much too soon, I am thankful that you are no longer suffering. Keep Dad company up there and try not to cause too much trouble together :)

Uncle Barry,
I am so sorry that your time with Aunt Mary has been cut so short. You will be together again one day and until then the memories and your family will get you through. Please know that we will always be here for you. Aunt Mary was such a wonderful person and had such a love of life and fun. Her memory and spirit will continue on with those who she has touched.

Becky,
Nothing compares to the loss of a parent. I know nothing will take away your pain but your mother was an amazing person and will be truly missed by many. Tyler and Madison were her pride and joy - she always lit up when telling stories of them. She will watch over your family always and stay with you in your hearts.

I will love and miss you always.....rest in peace Aunt Mary.

Our deepest sympathies to you and your family. MaryEllen was a spunky lady who pulled no punches. She was always happy and go lucky especially outside. We will always hear her electric garden tools as we have done over past 12 years. She will be missed.
