I am just learning of Mary's passing. Bill, I am so sorry. I wish we could have had a chance to get together before my Bill died. It was a pleasure knowing you both. Mary was always a delight, full of fun and always seemed to be happy. I know all of you will dearly miss her. You will be in my prayers. Judy
