When I think of Mary, I think of the saying "it takes a village to raise a child"...but for her I would say she "raised a village". All the little ones she took from tot to teen in our community will carry a bit of her with them throughout their lives. She was a friend, teacher, mentor and for many a second Mom. The Whitmire family is very honored to have had her in our lives. Our heartfelt condolences to the O'Neal family.

I had her as a dance teacher as a child, she was a guard instructor while in band, and her daughter was a classmate. My daughter danced with her for 10 years, my son also for hip-hop. She became a member of our family during those 10 years, attending my wedding and being a mentor to my daughter. She will be forever missed. What a wonderful person gone, and my heart just aches. My thoughts go out to her husband, and children and all the rest of her family during this most difficult time. Rest In Peace Miss Mary.
