  1. I remember when Mary came to visit us in California where we took her to the beach , Universal Studios , and to Sea World. Mary was like a kid in Disney Land. She loved everything there and we loved showing her a good time.
    Mary was am Angel who only knew being a servant to her family and on her jobs.
