  1. I’m so sorry to hear about Mary! She was a sweetheart. Very kind and considerate. She would help a lot of people. She used to ask my momma about me after I had stomach surgery. She was so good to my momma Patsy Hensley and would go for visits with her. And that really means a lot to me.
    I know the pain of losing someone so dear and the memories that come up later will be true treasures. I will keep your family in my prayers.

  2. We are sorry to hear Mary is gone. She will never be forgotten. A wonderful lady indeed. To the family our prayers are with you all. John we are so sorry. We know how much you loved her. If you need anything we are here. Our prayers and love are with you all..
