  • Nana you were the best grandmother ever! You were kind and very soft spoken, even when in the odd times that you did get angry you were always so adorable. I am sorry that I didn't have the money to visit you like I should have but know you are now and always will be in my heart. I feel you with Daralyn and Mom, I feel the strength that you 3 have for all your love ones here on earth thanks! I love you Nana!!!

  • Mary, was the kindest, sweetest lady ever. She certainly will be missed by everyone who loved her. She always had a kind warm and kind smile that made our day. It was always a pleasure Mary & Steve visited the Island and when we visited them. You could not ask for better people. R. I. P. Mary

  • Mary, you were one of sweetest, kindest ladies, I have known. Always concerned about others, and looking to give a helping hand. How are you dear?, was asked in the first sentence. Rest now Mary, and know you will never be forgotten.
