To all of Mary's Family and Friends. This comes to a shock to me, Mary was my friend at Meijer
here in Richmond,Whatever the weather would be, even when it snow, here came Mary in the door, boots and all. She would get a few things, but she always got her Pal-Item Paper. She would buy a candy bar and say, well I really dont need it.I said to her, you only live once and she looked at me and said with a smile, yes we do, just live once, but I wont be here next year, I said to Mary, enjoy your candybar,and I will see you soon, I go to work on Monday, and my coworkers, told me that my friend Mary had passed. She will be missed. I cant be with you today, but all of you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Marys friend Barb
