We will miss you
My prayers go out to all of you at this difficult time. I know Mary had suffered with lung cancer and emphysema for a long time so now she is at peace and no longer suffering. I know it will be hard but remember all the good times she did have with all of her extended family members.
Mary, you will be missed. I will always treasure our high school memories. Prayers for your family and friends as they grieve the loss of your presence in their lives here on earth. You are truly a sweet soul, you will be missed and always remembered. God bless you!!
