So sorry to read about Mary's death. She was such a good friend when I worked at First Federal Savings and Loan in Sidney. She made excellent carmels and shared them with us.

Dear Sue, We are so sorry to hear about your Mother. We know what a loss it is since it has been about 8 yrs since our mother passed. Mary was our nurse and a friend. Will always remember those days together at the dance school. Again we send our love and sympathy.
