Mary was a special lady.  I loved spending time with her, and taking care of her everyday.  I was privileged to know by working as her aide and activity lead.  It brought me joy to connect her with family during thought times.  I am thinking of you all and may God bring you comfort.  Prayers and love.   Dawn Ortega
