To the Spruill Family,

Mrs. Mary was a dear friend I met while volunteering at Sentara Assisted Living Facility. A group from my church volunteer on Wednesdays and do manicures for the residents. Mrs. Mary enjoyed getting her nails done, but loved the fellowship and the refreshments, especially the hot chocolate, just as much! We became especially close when we realized we shared the same birthday – she always smiled and admitted that she was older! I loved talking with her and listening to stories she shared about growing up and raising her family. She had such a sweet spirit and always a twinkle in her eye!! I will miss her dearly, especially every January 31st. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. May God give you peace and comfort and may your good memories always be very vivid.
