My sincere condolences to Sam and Kimberly. Mary and I would find each other every St. Patrick's Day after Mass at St. Pat's on Bridge Ave. We'd hug and share memories of Nazareth and what classmates we had seen recently. Mary will always have a special place in my heart. She Is a kind and beautiful soul. I am deeply saddened by her death. Rest In Peace, dear friend.

Dear Kim, I am so very sorry for your loss. She was like a second mother to me when we were growing up. I lovingly remember our trips and weekends at the boat. She was one of the kindest people I've known. Thinking of you....

Dear Sam and Kimmie,

Dearest Sam,

I wish I knew what to say now. I remember when you first dated Mary. On Whitehaven, she came in and then you came in, or vice versa. Mr. Cuffari thought that you two were a good match. He was right.

So to you, Kimberly and family, please know that I am thinking of you and will continue to pray for you peace and comfort.

"Lori", June's good buddy.

I worked with Mary at the Strongsville Building Department. I enjoyed working with Mary. She was always very nice and gracious. Mary had a calm personality and was very knowledgeable. She was a wonderful people-person. We kept in touch over the years, and I was just thinking of calling her again to catch up. We spoke not that long ago. Mary always talked about Sam and Kimmy. May God comfort your family and all those that love you and miss you. I am lucky to have known you, Mary. Enjoy Heaven, Sweetheart.
