    Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on, and cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone. Those we love can never be more that a thought apart. For as long there is a memory, they’ll live on in our hearts. Until we meet again lovely Mary

    Mary, you spent your life in servitude not only to the Lord but to all of us. As a small child you helped me grow up. Tough at times, but loving always. I cherish my memories. Love to your family. Pam
