To the family of Mary.
My heartfelt condolences for the loss of your beloved Mary . She was full of love and grace to those who had the privilege to meet her and get to know her.
I only met her a few times but those stand out in my mind as so special.
This following quote came to mind that I want to share ,
Some people come into our lives and quickly go
Some stay for a while , leave footprints on our hearts and we are never, ever the same.
Mary will be remembered with love.
