Dear Paul and family,Please accept my condolences for the loss of Mary. She was a wonderful, warm hearted woman who always had a smile, a laugh and a kind thing to say whenever she came your way.

Dear Paul and Family,We are so very sorry for your loss. Mary touched every life she came in contact with. She always had a smile and a good word for everyone. Mary epitomized bravery, loyalty and selflessness. Even when she was at her lowest point she still had a smile and offered to pray for me. Because Mary believed in prayer and the power of prayer. Her spirit was as strong as her body was weak. Her laugh and smile will never be forgotten, she made a difference in peoples lives, in my life. With every hardship Mary found the bright side, she was not a complainer she knew how to live each day she was given to the fullest. Mary was blessed with the kind of love so many of us seek in our lives but never find. Paul was that true and wonderful love, and he took such good care of Mary, she was able to stay at home till God called her. We will miss you Mary, we were so blessed to have known you.Mitzi, Jim, Brendan, Candi, Jessica and Rylee
