I regret the loss of Mary Aikey. At the same time, I acknowledge and commend the full and responsible life she lived.

I did not know her well. My relationship with her was a working relationship in her capacity as a condominium association director and officer. As a result of that relationship I gained a tremendous respect for Mary Aikey.

I had the pleasure of working with Ms. Aikey as the attorney for two condominium associations she ably served as director and officer. I developed a great deal of respect and admiration for her caring, quiet and insightful leadership. She made a measurably positive difference to the associations she served. It was a pleasure to work with her.

R. Bruce Carruthers, Attorney
