Johnny and family,

I was sadden you hear the passing of Aunt Mary. She was an amazing woman. My mom Palma loved her sister dearly and enjoyed her extended visits with her. I loved hearing them laugh and joke around while sitting in the kitchen drinking Mary’s endless coffee pot. Her kindness, her laugh and her memories will live on. May the memories of her provide you comfort.

Sincere Condolences, Ann
