I was shocked and heart broken by the news. I couldn’t believe Mary left me so suddenly! I was hoping to see her in the spring. Mary was like my mom. I even told her that she was even better than my mom. She was a very bright, generous, brave person. I learned a lot from her. I will never forget her sense of humor. I can’t stop crying when I think of her. I miss her very much. Mary will life in my heart for the rest of my life. Mary, if you can hear me, I want to say that I love you!
