Dear Mary Lou and Denny,

Thinking of you and praying as you say good bye to your Mom. I'm sure it's with mixed emotions. But God bless her, she's finally at Home with the Lord. For that, I am happy for her. God says, "Well done thou good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of the Lord."
Aunt Mary has a very special place in my heart. I was able to share many things with her and we developed a bond that was dear to me.
I'm sorry Hoot and I won't be with you for the service due to health issues,
But will surely be there in spirit. Love you both.
Remembering all the happy times we shared at the Glenmont house. And her wonderful Cathedral Windows dessert.

God bless you and keep you in the Palm of His Hand.

I am sorry you had to lose someone so important and special in your life. I’ll be praying for you and the rest of your family.

Moms are special people, especially ones like yours. From the time I spent with her, I could tell she was an amazing lady.

I will always remember her sweet smile and beautiful nature. May God keep you in his embrace at this difficult time.

Mary Lou and Denny,

All of my love is sent to you both during this time. I have so many special memories of Aunt Mary and those will live in my heart forever. I have a picture of Aunt Mary and my mom sitting together in mom's place in Hagerstown on my shelf that I see every day and that picture is even more special today than ever. I heard that it was a lovely service and filled with much love. As she was the same, lovely and filled with love.

All of my love to you both,

Dear Mary Lou and Denny,
I am sending this knowing that everything is finished. . . As you both know I was in Phoenix when I found out about the passing of your Mom, and my dear Aunt Mary. Your pain was felt by many, but none more than your cousins and the cherished memories we made for many many years. I have a flashback of her washing machine and her turning the wringer! I remember her sweet disposition, always so stylish , and topping the outfit off with her red hat, she was so proud of that! I remember the several times Jason and I went to see her and her face lit up . . . the music brought her so much joy. Her memory will live in my heart forever.
My Love and Prayers I send to you both, Dianne

To Mary's Family
We just learned about Mary when looking at Barber's for a friend. Mary was a lovely lady. Remember her visiting Hardy's parents, Katherine & Raymond Pickett. Her mother was Gertrude Cashell. That was back in the days when families visited, especially on Sunday after church. Our deepest sympathy to all the family. June and Hardy Pickett
