I m sorry I just found out about Mary passing. I met her at the dialysis clinic about 9 years ago. She was a wonderful person we would sit beside each other and talk all the time. I would make pens and other little things for her and her daughters and grandkids. She was so proud of them all. I started doing mine at home and didn’t get to see her as much. I really respected and liked her. No matter how bad it got she always had a smile and a kind word for you. She will be missed by all dearly.

Ms Mary always greeted you with a smile, even when she did not feel her best, she tried her best to make others feel good. Her sweet presence is truly missed. We all can rest knowing that she is not in any more pain. To her family, she loved you dearly and was so proud of each of you. Know that she is always with you and we are praying for you.

I knew her from dialysis, my wife and I loved her from the start. That love was returned to us immediately. A very sweet and tough lady, and we'll miss her sweet smile. Neal and Deby Wood
