So sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful woman and a great neighbor. Thought of her as a grandmother. She never baked a cake without making her famous jam cake for us and bringing it over to our fence and yelling for me. Loved talking with her. Sweet lady.

To the family of Aunt Mary, sympathy, thoughts and prayers. I remember her as being very kind and loving when I was young a child. She was always a favorite Aunt. I retired to Florida. Love always, Jimmy Brown.
