Your Mom was a blessing to everyone she ever met. She will be greatly missed. She now has her eternal reward with her Heavenly Father.
Love you all.

What a special friend and neighbor was Mary Rose! She welcomed us to Glencairn in 1969 and remained our loyal friend for over 45 years. Always gracious, supportive and loving. We are so sorry to miss her memorial service as we will be away. Our love and prayers go out to Scott, Amy, and the family she was so very proud of.

I will miss your voice, laughter, and embrace, but always will have our friendship. Your kindness, beauty, and humor will stay in my heart. Thank you for the fun and fellowship, and gratitude lessons along the way. (Thanks for passing along your New Yorker magazines. Yes, I’m still reading them.) Then there are those coffee cups with your lipstick on the rim. So much is meant in all this. In life you astonished my imagination. That you are gone does much the same. I have a few tears, but many smiles, and those will last a long, long while. What better gift can one leave? Much love. Travel well. I’d love to walk with you, talk with you, and hug you just one more time. Perhaps another day, another place.
