    I’m so very sorry to hear of Aunt Mary’s passing. She was always one of my favorite Aunt’s. Jeanette, Joann, Jenny and Joyce, you and your families are in my prayers. I will not be able to make it to the service, due to returning to Arizona before the 15th.

    Just heard of Aunt Mary. So sorry to hear of her passing. My prayers to her daughters. A long twenty years to be reunited with Uncle Bill. Now they are reunited for eternity.
