    Don, Geneva & I were your neighbors long ago when we first moved to Brookhaven. Mary lived a long bountiful life and we pray you can find peace with her memory. God bless.

    Don ~ The first thing I thought of when I learned of Cousin Mary's death was that now she has all the answers about Ruth Summers that we have diligently searched for all these years.
    Today, I'm sad and we grieve with you and your family but at the same time I remind myself how blessed we all were to have had her in our lives.

    With love and sympathy,
