It is with great sadness that we were informed of the passing of my cousin Mary. Over the years we had made trips to Missouri as well as her making trips to California, Although distance kept us from a close relationship, you only had to meet Mary and Marty to feel the love and kindness that these two showed. She will be missed by those she leaves behind but welcome with open arms in her new heavenly home. Are prayers are with her and her Family. Mike & Debra Smith
