    I’ll always remember Mrs.Mary as a good Christian Lady.
    Always had a smile on her face
    Used to enjoy Bro. Julian and her coming to Salem Church.
    I’m sorry for your loss but Look What She’s Traded for A Mansion

    Your mom was a very lovely woman. She was always kind, funny, caring, with a wonderful smile that made you feel good! She loved her family very much and was so proud of all the children and grandchildren. She will be missed but is now out of pain in the loving arms of our Heavenly Father. We know she is smiling down on all of you!
    Love and sympathy,
    Ronnie and Fran Gregory
