    Dear Gary, Joanne, Kaylan, Dylan, Sonny & Denise & Reed William. So sorry to hear of Mary’s death! She was a truly generous Lady with a sincere love of her family! Sorry to not be at her service on Friday. My sympathy to all of you. Bev

    We were saddened to read about the loss of Mary. I am Ralph’s nephew (Clarence’s son) and remember many fun times with them both. Mary had a great sense of humor. I hadn’t heard from her for a long time, so am glad I called and talked with her this past Winter/Spring. I won’t be able to keep my promise to drive out to Buffalo for a visit. We shall keep your family in our thoughts and prayers.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal”.

    With dancing feet and a heart full of love.
    Proud to be Swedish and always on the move.
    Mary lived life to the fullest with experiences galore,
    and this lovely lady deserved even more.
    She had an eye for fashion and I won’t soon forget
    one of the sweetest people I’d ever met.
