    I am very sorry for your loss. She was such a wonderful lady. She definitely had lots of fun with Evelyn and my mother Olive at those crazy Stanley Home parties or just visiting. Her joyful spirit will always be with you. She will be sadly missed but I will always remember the good times and her beautiful smile.

    I am sad for her leaving, but know she resides now with God, and is free from the limitations of her body. I enjoyed meeting her, and listening to her stories. She will be missed. RIP Mary
