    I wish to send my heartfelt sympathies to your family. I had the priviledge of working with Mary at St. John’s Church in Florida. At the time I was the Music Director there and became close with Mary. She always had a smile, words of inspiration and a wonderful uplifting comment for me whenever I saw her. After retuning to Maine, Mary and I spoke often on the telephone to “check up” on each other. It was not out of the ordinary to find that Mary had called me while I was working or out and about. I would promptly call her back and we would have a chat. I visited her when I would return to St. Pete Beach for a week’s vacation.
    She will be greatly missed but remembered greatly.. May God’s peace comfort you.

    Sincerely,

    Jayson E. Cote

    I will always remember Mary as a wonderful, inspirational teacher who held high expectations of or her students. I was fortunate to be her student at St. Bernard’s.
