  1. My heart goes out to you’re family during this difficult time. 🙏

  2. Dear Aunt Mary, I wish I could be with you at this moment for your tribute. Once I arrive back from France I hope to see Tracy and Sandy.
    You were such a faithful sister to my mom, Ophelia and a friend to me. I will miss you.
    Love, Terry

  3. My dear sweet Aunt Mary will be missed. Have a beautiful journey to the glory of God.

  4. Will always remember my dear Aunt Mary and her sister Cora (my mother) having each other’s back with child care. They both were young mothers and family was essential in rearing so many children. The kid swaps were weekly, if not daily and Tracy (Aunt Mary’s oldest daughter) and I became good friends as very young children. Farewell Aunt Mary and thank you for the wonderful memories. God Bless
