Maryís family would like to thank the following people who showed extra love during Motherís last year of life: to her nurse LeeAnn who took great care of her and brightened her day with every visit; to her neighbor Pat who cooked meals just for Mary and always stayed for a visit; to sweet Sheila who prayed for her daily and stopped by the hospital to offer a word of cheer and who kindly rubbed her fingers through Motherís hair just because it felt so good; and to Nazee for her loving friendship and cheerful spirit. Mother always enjoyed your calls and visits.
