I am so sad to hear of my dear Aunt Mary’s passing. I will always remember warmly the times that we spent together before I moved from the area, and the all too infrequent visits since then. Sometimes we would journey to Wal-Mart or Mehlman’s, or the cemetery, and sometimes we would just sit and talk. Our last excursion was to the Highlands, followed by lunch at Bob Evans, but I could tell it wasn’t as much fun for her anymore, and she was happy and relieved to get back home. She had a special place in my heart, and that place will be hers forever. Rest in peace, Aunt Mary, now reunited with Uncle Joe.

My father, Stanley, was Mary’s husband’s brother. Sincere sympathies to the family.
