We are so sorry for your loss. There are so many memories of great times with all of you, your Dad and Mom. Saturday night card games, watching wrestling matches on TV, flying kites at Ocean City. The list is endless. Mary was so loving, kind and a big influence to us personally. She will be greatly missed. Love to all of you. We miss you, too.
