Heaven indeed has received a beautiful soul. Mary was one of the sweetest woman weI've ever had the honor to call our friend. We are sad that she is gone but also are happy to know she is with our buddy,T.C. It was especially tough to tell Derek cause those guys had a special bond ever since he was just a babe! He has been going thru some rough stuff and this was another blow. But I'm sure Miss Mary will send down some loving smiles for him .. Sorry that we cant make it to her service but know wel will be sending our thoughts and prayers to all of you.. love you all,Mike and Shelly

Jean, Charles and extended families, It saddens me that Mary will no longer be with us. She was a special person to me, in part because she made me feel I was special to her. Loving memories will linger with us all. I am sorry I cannot be there to show my honor for her and share our loss together. God bless you all. Love, Nancy and Mickey Carter
