Greg and I will cherish the many memories we have of Mary. Mary lived her life to serve the Lord first and worked tirelessly to bring others to know and love Him. Mary was hospitable and often opened her home to others for a meal or to celebrate a special occasion. To know Mary was to love and learn from her. Lastly, she ADORED her family and would drive for hours to attend a grandchild's birthday or to celebrate a special day with them. Greg and I look forward to seeing Mary on the other side and we rejoice that she now has her crown and will surely hear "well done..good and faithful servant" soon!!
