There are no words to describe how deeply Mary will be missed. She was an amazing woman and I was truly blessed to have been her friend and neighbor for many years. She adored her family and loved sharing stories and photos. In return, Walter, Christine, Paul, Scott and all her grandkids were totally devoted to her. Mary has left them a legacy of love and memories and the gift of an example of a live well lived for them to cherish. To Walter and his wonderful family, my deepest sympathies, prayers, and love. I also include condolences from my sons, Scott and Michael and their families. My grandson, Chandler remembered her as the "nice lady who lived across the fence". Mary has finally gone home to be with "my Al". May they rest in peace.
