    I will always remember my Aunt Mary for having the best laugh and sense of humor. She was always so full of joy and light.

    I hope she is happy reuniting with her sister, grandparents and great grandfather.

    I know she will be missed by Roy and the boys.
    Sending you all hugs during this very difficult time.
