Marsha and family, so sad to read tonight of Mary’s passing. As you all know very well, Mary was a very special lady. So glad she and I had the chance recently to talk and reminisce about when we worked together many years ago. That was a blessing. You are in my thoughts and prayers .
Mary Grace, such a sweet and gracious lady. She and Benny were two of Prince’s favorites. My condolences to her family. May God’s blessings cover her soul and all of you during the days ahead.
Marsha, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. I know she will be missed and I offer my prayers to you and your entire family during this difficult time. Sending my love.
Ronnie, Marsha and family,
I know your hearts are hurting right now but know that your mom is at rest and peace with your dad and other family members. May you find peace through grace that is promised by our Heavenly Father.
Ronny, Marsha, and Kenneth:
Sorry for your loss, but 91 years is a ripe old age. My mother lived to be 90 and my dad to 91, but even so, it’s always hard to let them go. Sympathy and best wishes from your old neighbor on Hillside & Holiday.
I will sure miss Mrs. Mary. We delivered Meals on Wheels to her for several years and she was just the sweetest lady ever. She knew my weakness for sweets, so when she had left over cake from a lunch with her friends, she would call me to come and get a piece! I just know she is rejoicing in heaven and catching up with friends and family that had gone before her. Rest easy my friend ????
Ken, I am so sad to hear of your mother’s passing. What a great lady she was. Thoughts and prayers for you and the family.
I always enjoyed when Bennie and Mary were around. They both were special people. So sorry for the loss of a great matriach.
