    Even though I never personally met this wonderful lady and mother, I came to know a lot about her from her son, Steve. From his excerpts from his stories about her when he was growing up, made her dear to my heart also. Rest in peace.

    My husband Ken & I will always treasure the visit we had with Aunt Mary & Uncle Ernie in 2005. It was evident that she was a great mom to her children & we send sincere condolences to my cousins.
