Oh Miss Mary (name I gave her at dialysis) that everyone picked up on. She was one of a kind and we all looked forward to hearing her stories of the family dinners and parties at dialysis. I knew some of her neighbor hood so we would talk about the going ones there. My husband died 11/28. He was on dialysis and I would sit and wait for him. Another one of our friends from there died same day as Miss Mary. She is also at Rea’s. The girls there will really miss Miss Mary but know she is not alone. There were 3 great people traveling to heaven with her. My prayers are for the ones left behind. So sorry.

So many memories with this Sweet Lady to even get started. I stopped to visit (Mom Mary ) everytime I was in Sedalia. And we talked on the phone several times. So Thankful to have had her in my life. Rest in Paradise Mom Mary. Forever in my heart!❤
