Please forgive me for not knowing this at the time of Mary's passing. Mary was a kind, sweet, gentle woman, who I had known for a few years. Mary treated me like a daughter, like a mother I never had. She was a wonderful cook !! She taught me many recipes. She was so kind, always willing to listen, give a hug, a gentle kiss, just being herself. I loved her dearly. She also had a son, whom I loved dearly. I think she even had a little dog. My deepest sympathy to Bob Gardner, her son. God Bless .
