  2. Mary was such a sweet neighbor always ready with a smile and warm welcome. She extended herself to my husband’s elderly mother during her visits with us,inviting her over or tea lifting her spirits and sending her home with a smile. It saddens me to think of this summer and not seeing Mary outside checking on her flowers. We will miss her. Karen & Tom
