To the whole family I am sorry for the loss. I was just thinking about her the other day. I drove by the house off Tesson Ferry. She had the joy of a wonderfully family and I hope a peaceful passing.
I think of you all fondly and often.
Our deepest condolences to Mary’s entire family. I have know Mary my entire life, since my sister (Marilyn Scherrer) and her were very dear friends. She even joined Marilyn & Sheri on a trip to see us in Key Largo one year. I too was just thinking of her the other day wondering how she was doing. The next day, one of our brothers called to inform me of her passing. I know you all will miss her very much. May time be your healer and friend.
