    We are terribly sorry about Mary’s passing. What a wonderful woman she was!! She was always concerned about everyone and always had a smile on her face. She will brighten heaven when she arrives. I know Charlie is delighted to have the love of his life with him while those left behind will miss her terribly.

    She was my Mother-in Law for 17 years and a best friend for most of my life. An endearing wife, mother and grandmother that everybody loved and will miss deeply. Enjoy your new peace with Charlie as you explore paradise together. You are and always will be, “So Loved”
