I was very saddened to hear of Mary's passing. I only had the pleasure of meeting Mary once and we talked as if we had been friends forever. I will truly miss talking with Mary over the phone.
I am very sorry for your loss.

Prayers for the family. My heart sank when I heard the news. I have only been with the NEOPS Corporate office for 10 months, but that was long enough to know how sweet she was! You are in my thoughts.

I grew up with Mary having attended Good Shepherd School together. When her family moved to Hawaii we kept in correspondence. Her husband Al was a great guy and as Uxbridgites we were all friends. Mary will be sorely missed. She was a ray of sunshine and a happy person all through her life. God called a good one home.

Mary was a good friend, and always pleasant no matter what was going on in her life. She was such a giving and sweet person, I am totally shocked to hear of her passing. She will be missed by every one who ever came in contact with her. A lovely person! My condolences to Hope and her entire family.

My husband and I were so sad to hear of the passing of Mary, I worked with Mary in Orthopedics at UMass, and when my husband had his leg amputated and we heard Mary was going to be his Prosthetist I knew he was going to be in good hands. She had a caring and kind soul, always going the extra mile. RIP in peace Mary. Sam and Christine Cobain

We are shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of Mary. We discovered we were distant relatives a few years ago and have been touched by her warm and caring nature. We are so sad that we never got the opportunity to see and meet her in person, but have arranged for a mass to be said at St Augustine's in Coatbridge, Scotland where her great grandparents married in 1895.
Rest in Peace Mary!
Love and condolences from her Scottish relatives.

I was shocked and saddened by Mary's sudden passing. I worked with her at NEOPS. She was always upbeat and compassionate with her patients. She had an enormous love for her family, life, and giving of her time to people in need. She had a beautiful soul that I am sure will now shine in heaven. Rest in peace Mary.

My heart was shocked and saddened when I heard of Mary's death. She is THE kindest and most loving person I have had the pleasure of meeting. I knew Mary through bible study and friends. I also had the pleasure of knowing her at NEOPS where I had to go for business. Certainly one of a kind! My prayers to the family for their loss! Be comforted knowing she is running on streets of gold!
