    What a joy is has been to know Ms. Mary. I was always inspired by her grace and dedication to her family. You are all so very blessed to have her watching over you from heaven. I am thankful her suffering has ended and I know she is wearing those dancing shoes again. Much love and my prayers to each of you.
