Guest Book

It is with deep sadness that I acknowledge the passing of our dear Mary. I will always love her for giving life to my precious friend, Robin and for sharing herself with me as "Mom" after I lost my own mother. I will always admire her for her kindness and generosity. I will always appreciate her for teaching me many things, including fashion tips and negotiating my way around a good flea market. May you rest in peace, Mary, and may your family and friends find comfort in knowing that yours was a life well lived and that we will all be together again some day. Love Always, Tish (and Larry)
