  1. Our sympathy’s are with you.Mary was such a friendly and caring person.I remember a Christmas party at Bobs and Marys years back,she loved entertaining people.I know there will be sad days ahead,but more days of happiness knowing she is no longer suffering in this world.Love to all the Family.

  2. Please accept my heartfelt sympathies. My heart goes out to the family. Death is something we will never get use to. In fact, God’s Word refers to death as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) It is comforting to know that very soon our loving Heavenly Father, Jehovah God, will remove death once and for all and give us the opportunity to see our loved ones again here on the earth.

  3. Bob, we are truly sorry for your loss and that of your family. Mary was a very nice, friendly lady. We met her many years ago when she stopped to talk to us as she was walking her dogs. We thought she was very kind and vivacious. We have missed her during the years of her illness.
