Dear Sarah and family, I wish to convey my sympathy and condolences to all of you on the loss of your lovely Mother. Some years ago, I had the pleasure of assisting your Mom and Dad with several legal matters. I have never met two finer people in all my years as an attorney. Mary was, as you know, an extremely capable and accomplished person. Her most memorable quality to me however, was the kindness and unselfishness which was simply an integral part of her being. Her love for her family, and for each of you individually, was something she graciously and frequently shared with me whenever I had the pleasure of meeting with her. I hope you will be comforted in the days ahead with the assurance that God has already looked upon her with love and kindness. She was a delightful person.
