  • Got to meet Mary and got to be part of the family when I married Mary's daughter Maria. Mary was a wonderful mother-in-law and always made me feel part of the family. I remember when I first met her and was with a friend visiting from Vancouver. We stopped by the house and before we knew it we were having a bowl of fresh borsht and eating perogies and a jar of homemade dill pickles. When we left he asked if it always like that and it turned out it was. Maria and I had some wonderful times with Mom over the years and I was lucky to have had such a warm and loving mother-in law. We will miss her lots and always have fond memories. Love always - Posted by: Grant Irvine (son in law) on: Jan 15, 2022
