Dear Tim, Barb, and Mary Pat, my sympathy to you in this time of loss. I will always remember your Mom with a smiling face and the kind words she had for me growing up. She would always ask about me when I ran into her and was always so sweet. My memories of our childhood growing up are fond ones and I pray for your Mom and your family. May the peace of Christ be with you and your Mom always. Glen

Mary Anne was a gem: a strong, caring woman with one of the greatest laughs. She was a dear and loyal find to my mother, and indeed, to our extended family. You need only to look at her kids to see what a wonderful mother she was. Each of them carries on her best qualities, and that legacy will live on for years. I feel blessed to have known her, and I send along my prayers to the family. Take care of yourselves in the coming days.
Gary B.
