    Mary was a most treasured friend for over forty years. So many memories were made over that time as we shared our lives with one another. That part of Mary will live with me forever. I thank God for her life. I will miss her greatly. I pray for the repose of her soul. I pray for her daughters, their extended families, and her cherished friends that their sorrow will be lightened in time and that the joy she created in her life will be what is remembered. I know Mary would want all to remember her with much love, and to smile when remembering. She gave so much of herself. She was a very inspirational woman, doing kind deeds as a way of life. Giving to others gave her great satisfaction. I hope her legacy is that she has touched the lives of so many others to follow her example. Again, Thank-you God for the life you gave Mary.
    With deep sympathy,
    Eileen Baldassarre,
