  • Dear Jim,

    I’m sorry about your Mom’s death. Our mothers were good friends and it was always fun coming to your house, as a youngster, to play. Mary was always gracious. Then I grew up and lived across the street for a few years. Again, your mom as a good neighbor.

    She will always have a special place in my heart.

  • Mary was such a sweet lady with a ready smile for everyone. As a new sister she made me feel comfortable and welcome. Even when I could see she was hurting she never complained and stuffed her poor swollen feet into her shoes to come to Sunday services. I kept saying to her Mary why don’t you just wear slippers so you would be more comfortable? She’d just give me that sweet smile of hers and say she could handle it for a hour or so and pat my hand. I’m so sorry for your loss.

  • JIM

    SO SAD TO SEE YOUR LOSS. OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS.

    YOUR MOM WAS A VERY SPECIAL PERSON SHE ALWAYS HAD A SMILE
    AND WHEN I PUT MY SNOWMAN OUT IT ALWAYS HAS A VERY SPECIAL
    PLACE ON MY SNOWMAN SHELF.

    AGAIN OUR PRAYERS FOR YOU.

    DR BRAD AND BECKY WALKER
