Celebrate Mary's life with a short message, photo or video!

To Cousin Charlie Jr., Shelley, Kelley, Grandchildren & Great Grandchildren. So sorry to hear cousin MaryAnn passed. I hear she went through a lot and is no longer in all that pain. She is now at peace, and smiling down on all of you! I had not seen her in years, but thought of her often. Auntie Mildred always let me know how she was doing and let her know I sent my Love. I just wish I had taken a day to drive up and spend with her. I’d love to have pictures of her, of you girls, as well as your children and grandchildren. Also of you and your family Charlie Jr. (paynejas@yahoo.com). I Send My Love and My Prayers to All of You. Hopefully I will get to meet the Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren.
