As we express our final goodbye’s to Mary Ann we reminisce and reflect in such a wonderful life lived. Her love, strength, perseverance and kind hearted demeanor were a blessing to anyone who she encountered.  She was the first person to offer up a hug, a kind word or her last dollar.  She truly had no enemies in life.  She will be missed by all and remembered to be as sweet as the candy she always brought to our family gatherings and kind hearted as the one she spread through all her holiday and birthday poems.  Although she was taken from this life way too soon she leaves a lasting legacy for our family to embrace and carry on. We love and miss you but you will forever be in our hearts.  Rest easy and continue to shine down on us so our gardens grow.  All our love.
