Mary was a wonderful friend and such a caring person. She always put everyone before herself. Very selfless. I didnt know her long, but I would have done anything for her. Rest easy, Mary. Save me a spot up there, girl.

Mary was a dear friend and will always hold a special place in my heart. She was a bright light in an otherwise Dark World. Take comfort in knowing her love will always shine on her family.
