Rest in Peace Aunt Mary. I'm so grateful I got to see you when I did. My entire life is made of many happy memories. You had the largest smile and loudest laugh, and it makes me smile to think of that. Until we meet again. Party on in Heaven like the parties we had back in the day :) I'll forever love you.

I loved her very much. I used to go with her for the whole summer no matter what state she was in at the time. I was like a daughter to her, especially when I was very little, mostly everyone thought I was hers since we were always together. Will miss her deeply.

Chris...I know that it was a long and hard illness for your mother. Her strength and courage were an inspiration to many as was your dedication to her care. My thoughts and prayers are with you and with all of your family. Please accept my deepest condolences
