I met Mary when her sister, my friend SIster Rose Curtin, was ill. I also saw her every Sunday with Letitia at St. John’s church. She always had kind and warm things to say. I will always remember her as a kind and loving person. My sincere sympathy for her family, for the loss of this wonderful lady.

I don't think I have a memory of Aunt Mary that doesn't included some sort of kindness or smile or heartwarming laugh!!! She will forever hold a place in my heart and be sorely missed! I'm so very sorry for your loss!
