    My deepest sympathy goes out to Mary’s family and friends. I’m so sorry that I’m not there. I grew up with Mary, we were best friends. We loved music driving around in my ‘57 Chevy. Today I turned on the radio and “Jeramiah was a Bullfrog” was playing…all those memories came flooding back to me of our good old days…as that was one of her favorite songs. I will miss you dearly my old friend. See you on the flipside.
