  8. Sara…

    I was saddened to learn of Mary Ann’s passing today. She was a very unique person who touched those who knew her in an uplifting manner and I hold a sense of intense privilege and gratitude for having been allowed to share a part of her life. I know how much you will miss her, but I also know you will remember the many blessings of the years you shared together and that her life gave you many memories too beautiful to forget. Take comfort in knowing a special angel is now watching over you, and may the peace which comes from the memories of love shared comfort you now and in the days ahead. My prayers, sympathy, and warm thoughts are with you.
