Mary, the day I interviewed you many years ago I new we would be good friends. I actually hired you on your personality first and then your skills. Whenever we went shopping or get our manicuures/pedicures people always thought we were sisters. I actually loved hearing that because it felt like we were. I miss you so much already. We were supposed to play Thelma and Louise, but you didn't wait for me! Thirty years of friendship and never an argument. Now that is a true friend. Love you and we will see each other again.

Mary is such a sweet gentle Soul. I didn't know she was still sick. I thought she was better. So sad on this plane to know she has passed. And comforted to know she is experiencing such joy in the After Life with God and all those she loves.
