    I will never forget the joyous laughter and ready smile Mary had. Her love of all things Christmas, her massive plates of delightful Christmas cookies, the amazing food she cooked and the treasured recipes of hers I still use often. I will miss visiting with her at my parents farm and the little giggle she had when something tickled her. Her heart was so full of love for others and that was evident I all she did. Uncle Ernie, I’m sending you a big hug and much love. I wish I could be there in person, but know that I love you and am praying for you. I know she has left a large hole in your heart, but so very thankful we will see her again!!!

    I want to express my condolences to Uncle Ernie and Mary’s family. It is sad to know that we won’t have Mary here with us anymore. I am so thankful for how she touched my life over the years and how she took me under her wing when I was acclimating to city life. She had the gift of hospitality and generosity and she sure could make delicious goodies! She and her smile will be greatly missed. We lost a neat lady! Miss you Aunt Mary, but thankful we will meet again!
