We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear Aunt Mary. May God grant her peace, forgiveness, and a place in the highest heaven. She was a kind, loving, and giving Aunt to us. And a loving and loyal sister to our mother Anna. May God give her family comfort and the patience to bare this difficult loss. She will be dearly missed by all.
