    Mike and Kate Butler says:
    We knew Mary and Bill when we lived in Lakeland Fl., where we were all parishioners at the Church of the Resurrection, and where Mike and Bill worked together at Davy McKee. It was a real pleasure to know Bill and Mary. We are saddened to find only via Mary's obituary notice that we have once again been in the same parish and the same town. We have been seasonal residents here for a few years, after twenty years in Houston. We offer our sincere condolences to the family. Rest in Peace, Mary and Bill.

    My immediate thought of Aunt Mary was that she was every inch a lady. I loved the time Grandma, Grandpa Erdman & I went with her, Marie & Uncle Bill to their home in West Virginia many years ago. What a great time we had. Marie, I'm so sorry to hear of her death, and that I did not know until today. I remember both of your parents with great fondness & respect.
