  1. Dear Mary & family, We are so sorry for the loss of your very dear Mother. It was such a privilege to be able to know her. She and I had a lot of good talks together. I will miss her very much as she was one of the sweetest people I have ever met. God Bless you. Love Beverly & Gene Herrmann.

  2. To all of you at this time I just want to let you know our thoughts and our prayers are with you all. I have so many fun memories of your mom. I remember her comin home and always setting her black purse down, and going to the kitchen and pouring her favorite drink, coke and a goodie. She would always ask what everyone was doing and where they were and what Mary had planned. I remember fish sticks on fridays and sleeping in the room when i spent the night. I was always amazed at her strength and her abilities as a single mom with sooo many kids. Decisions were always steadfast whether any of her children agreed and it got her so far. I always thought her Merle Norman make up was the greatest, all that lipstick I got…… loved her and she is resting without pain and without stress…hugs to you all and Mary I love you. Brenda

  3. Dear Sharon and Connie, I was very sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. I’m sure she was a wonderful woman. I spoke to her several years ago and she was very kind. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Always, Rose

  4. She was the best mom anyone could ever ask for. She was always there for us and our friends and really just about anybody who asked for help. She has always been an inspiration to me. If anyone were to ask who my hero was, I automatically tell them, my mother! Whenever life got tough and I thought, I just can’t do it anymore, I thought about mom and how she raised all of us children by herself. I think she was proud of each and every one of us and we all adored her and strived to be the best we could for her. I love you mom, and I look forward to the day when I’m with you and daddy once again.
