I was sorry to hear about Mary.  She was such a sweet lady.  She worked in the cafeteria when I went to Northeastern and I later met her again when she was at the Lauramoore.  I worked briefly at Rose Gate while she was there but hadn''t seen her in the past year.  My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.  Linda Jones
