Dear Mary Ellen, Jerry, and all family,

We are sorry to hear that your mother has passed away. She was a very kind and loving woman who was special to many who knew her. I remember her, Mary Ellen, from her walking you to Rose Hill, bringing you over for birthday parties, and the great friend she was to my mother. May God bless her and all of her family.
