    Words cannot express the sadness I feel in my heart for loosing my Baby Sister, my best friend.
    I will never forget our times we spend together growing up and our many talks we shared.
    I am so glad I was able to fulfill and share her special wish shortly before her passing.
    You will be always in my heart. I love you Mary.

    My heart is extremely heavy with grief. I’ll always remember Mary as my big sister from another mother. I will always remember our special times & candid conversations about any & everything. You taught me a lot in life….you trusted me to watch Mally as a baby when you went back to work. You even you put in a good word & I was hired. Once we began working together….we really became inseparable. You were a risk taker & didn’t hesitate to teach me how to drive your little red Celica (with plates that read Lil Ms M) on 280, in the fast lane….I was so scared….but you made me push past my fear because you believed in me. I was a part of your family and you were a part of mine. I would watch in awe as you zipped & glided around the skating rink….the smallest one out there leading the group. You were a natural. I’m truly going to miss our fun times together, your spunky personality, your sense of humor, great fashion sense & your big warm heart.

    Rest in Peace, Love you with all my heart.😘
