I am so sorry to read of Miss Mary's passing. She was a lovely, lovely lady and I will miss our visits - especially those with my dog, Mr. Bean. She was engaging and fun at trivia, and over the years it was interesting to learn of her travels in the states and abroad. She loved to fly and large bodies of water. She told me - on several occasions - that she lived a wonderful life. I learned from her. She spoke proudly of her son and daughter-in-law and their two dogs ("real brother and sisters!"). Miss Mary had a wealth of historical knowledge, spoke highly of our military, and was greatly appreciative to those who served. Truly, I will miss her. Much love and comfort to those who loved her.
