Aunt Mary was one of the most wonderful people I had the privilege of knowing these past 30 years. She was kind, generous and loved unconditionally. I have some many fond memories of her and am fortunate to have been her nephew through marriage. She will always have a place in my heart.
Mary was my godmother for the Sacrament of Confirmation in 1956. My parents chose her for me and it was a wonderful choice. I remember her as being generous, kind and loving. I was happy when she married and sad that she lost her husband after such as short marriage. My sympathy to her family and friends.
