I was very sad to hear of the passing of my cousin Mary. I offer my and my husband Fred's condolences to all of her family. I know she was beloved and loving, and I know she will be dearly missed. I have fond memories of my summer visits to my McManus cousins as a child. "Speak her name and she will be forever by your side." May she rest in peace, and may your precious memories bring you comfort in the days and years ahead.
Alan and Darrell, there are no words I can say that will ease your pain. Someday soon I hope her memories will bring a smile to your face rather than tears.
I’m so very saddened by the passing of my cousin Mary. I offer my sincere condolences to her entire family. Even though I hadn’t seen Mary in years, we always communicated at Christmas time, and I enjoyed her lovely letters that she wrote in her cards. May she Rest In Peace with her beloved Bob. God bless all of you, and I’ll be thinking of you at this difficult time.
Mary, I have thanked God countless times that you and Bob are Jason's grandparent's! We are so blessed that you are part of our lives. We will carry you in our hearts forever.
Such a dear, sweet lady. My husband Bob, our grandson Michael and myself, always enjoyed church brunches after Mass with them and our "favorite group". Many a stories and memories were told at those tables…As much as we will miss her; I am happy for her because now she is reunited with her dear husband Bob.
