Mary was my mother's childhood and young adult best friend. She was always so kind to me. As a kid I always felt like she thought anything I said was fascinating. (It was not). She was a loving loyal friend to my mother until the end of my mom's life. She was always great to me. And I will never forget Hugh and Mary coming all the way to NYC for my mom's surprise birthday party. Sending lots of love to Hugh and Joanna and the whole family.

Arlene and I want to offer our sincere condolences to Hugh and Mary’s family for the loss of Mary. She loved and cherished her life, always happy and a smile that shined so bright that would warm the hearts of people she met. She loved sitting on the front porch enjoying the sun, the birds singing and the flowers that Hugh had planted around the porch. Mary was a person who had a kindness and generous spirit, and she was cherished by her friends and neighbors who knew her. She will live in our hearts and memories. To Hugh and Mary’s family our thoughts and love are with you in this time of sorrow.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
