Lisa and Tommy I am so sorry to hear your mother has passed but now she is with her mother an father and sisters and brothers and not hurting or suffering anymore. I always love Mary when I was young I spent a lot of time with her and since she was in Summer Breeze we would talk about every week and planned to go on a trip one day when she was better. Till the calls stopped and I did not hear from her anymore. I miss talking to her and all my Moms family. God Bless and may God help you through this time of sorrow
