Ever beautiful and the ultimate hostess…our world was graced to have had Mary in it. As the oldest of 4 girls (as was Mary)…she was my role model and I often told her that. As her health has declined I have been more than Blessed to spend more time with her laughing and reminiscing….which I’m sure she’s now doing with my Mom, her sisters, Nancy, and Duke. Home at last. Love you beautiful Mary. ♥️🙏💐✝️🎆
