Kathy, Patty, and Michael, My deepest sympathy on the loss of your mother. Mary was a wonderful mentor/role model to me as I first started teaching at Taft and we remained friends as the years went by. She loved all of you so much and would tell so many stories about her grandchildren. Mary was always kind, caring, and loving!
