    I did not know about Aunt Mary’s passing until 1/5/2013 when my Aunt June asked me if I had gone to the funeral. My thoughts are with her family but know that Uncle AF and her parents and siblings all of whom she loved dearly will be there to meet her and she will be with our lord forever. She was always so very sweet and kind and will be missed by all that knew and loved her.
