  1. Aunt Mary was a marvelous woman who played a key role in my life. She was always there to offer advice and unconditional love.

    Her talents were many — both artistic and personal. Her ability to paint was amazing. But I’ll also never forget the wonderful letters that she wrote, the fact that her home was always open to family and friends, and her smiling beautiful face.

    She will be missed by many — especially Laurie and Guy who have done so much for her and for Uncle John over the last few years. Thank you so much for taking care of our wonderful aunt. You two are very special people.

  2. Dear Laurie & Guy,
    Bonnie called me to tell of Aunt Mary’s passing. We had just spent some time the day before recalling our childhood memories of Aunt Mary and Uncle John (her fabulous cakes that she baked in that small oven, the gingerbread house she made for the holicays, and the many Christmas family get togethers on Lakeshire Road. Even though I haven’t seen her in quite some time, she was always in my thoughts and prayers. I will miss her so much and want to thank you both for caring for her and Uncle John.
    Love you both,
    Kathy

  3. Our Aunt Mary was truly everyones Aunt. Her door was always open to feed you, comfort you or to just share your latest accomplishment with. She will be forever loved and missed by all who ever entered her home. She and Uncle John were a wonderful couple who will now be reunited in heaven.
