Went to Canada Corners school with Mary. She was a very nice person and a joy to know. She was in a class with my brother Duane Mums

I remember Mary from my early teen years when I spent so much time at the old Hill home on 19 Mile Road. I remember her as being so pretty and very sweet. I have no doubt that she was the best wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, since love is the source. My condolences to all the family. We are never ready to lose Mother.
