    Mary Sue and I were best friends through grade school. We went separate ways after that however I have many fun memories playing release, sled riding and swimming when we were kids. Although I have not seen her in way too many years she will always be in my memory as my best friend up the street at one time. Sounds like she had a great life but gone way too soon. RIP Mary Sue.

    Mary took such good care of my children Emily and Michael when they were young. Michael called her “Mia.� She and Greg went far and above to make their time away from me structured, fun, and loving. We shared a love for all our children and a love for all the dogs in our lives. Michael, Becca, and Caitlin please remember all the good times and know that she really did love you so much! Ian, she was so proud of you and loved you more than life itself. Mary had a heart of gold. She went through so much physically and emotionally yet she always did her best to care for others. She will be always in my heart (as you will be Greg) for helping me raise my children. My prayer for her is that she is in the glorious presence of God and without pain. ��
