Dear Liz and Theresa
So sorry for the loss of your mother. You both will be in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
Liz, I am so very sorry to read of your Mother’s passing. I remember her fondly as a very strong woman. You and your family will be remembered in my prayers.
Sending sympathy to your family. I worked at Swisher International for 20 years and Mary was helpful to me. She will be missed.
My heart goes out to all who knew and loved Memah! She taught us all through her examples of hard work, generosity, forgiveness and humor. Christmas will never be the same without her, and I sure will miss those Euchre games! Memah you will be missed!
I had the pleasure of meeting Mary on a trip to Wheeling to visit Liz with Scott Ewing on Mother’s Day several years back. She welcomed me into her home, gave me hugs, let me play with her dogs and made me feel loved like family. I’ll never forget her smile, warm hugs and hospitality. I feel honored for having known her. God Bless her family during this rough time.
Meemaw was always there with a hug, kiss and food. I’ll always remember having her ship packages from our last visit because we couldn’t carry on all the Adidas clothing we bought. You’ll always be loved and missed greatly.
