  • I was so sorry to hear of Mary’s passing. Mary and I met at church, along with her daughter, Lisa and my friend, Donna. We had many conversations arriving at church and upon leaving. This may not sound like much, but we shared that church bond, and became friends. We shared some joking, and I admired Mary in many ways. Lisa, along with your brothers and family, please accept my sincere condolences. I will miss seeing Mary at Church. Rip, and May our Lord already be holding her in his arms! Gloria Rawlins…
