    Wish I was there with you. Mary was a bright and cheerful soul who always smiled through everything. She shared sunshine with all those around her. A proud and loving wife, mother and Christian. The light that shined in her eyes will always be a part of me and will shine from all of us.

    I'm very sorry for the loss of your sweet and beautiful mother. I wish I could give Judy, Robert, and John a big hug now. My Aunt Mary was always so fun to be around, and she lit up the room with her bright smile. She was very strong and courageous even through the tough times. I know you deeply miss her, but she's probably having a reunion right now with Uncle Rodney and Barbara (Mom). With sympathy and love, ReneƩ Saladin

    So sorry to hear of her passing. Being 97 years old I was not able to make the trip to her services. Mary Lee's cousins Juanita Hilliard, Maurene Hilliard Russell and I send our heartfelt condolences to you all.
