    Dear Rita, Glen & families
    I am saddened to hear of Mary’s passing and yet happy for her as I know she is at peace. Your Mom was like a Mother to me and a Grandma to my daughters. She has a very special place in our hearts. I loved seeing her when she came to see the Dr. I admired her spunk and her sharp wit. I am away at present so will not see you on Friday but you are in my thoughts and prayers.
