So sorry to hear about Mary. Have heard wonderful stories about her from Paula over the years. Sounds like she had a meaningful life and a life well lived! Much love from the Grizzells and Barbara and Jennifer Anderson.

I didn't know your mother, but I honor her courageous and selfless service as a Veteran nurse during war and reflect what must have been her great sense of humor throughout it all: "I'd rather be shopping" - wouldn't we all at times like these?
