I am so heartbroken to hear about Mary’s passing! There are so many wonderful memories during my childhood of Mary that I couldn’t list them all. Just a few...........Hot Chocolate and toast before school, slumber parties, her and my mom sitting outside in lawn chairs watching us play on summer evenings. Her laughing until she cried when I told her stories of some of my experiences. When we lived beside them Mary was like my second mom. I can still hear her infectious laugh and I loved to make her laugh. Kelly and I were close friends for so many years and my heart and prayers go out to her❤️ This family was such a big part of my young life and I loved them all so much! Mary, May you Rest In Peace with your husband and “little” Dave❤️ and being with your family that’s passed on again will be such a great reunion. Kelly I miss you, love you, and pray that you will know that all the members of your family that hAve passed on are there with you everyday! The veil is thin and they are close by! Please know that I love you and I loved your Mother so much. Stay strong and know that The Lord will help you through.

With my deepest sympathies and love,
Karen (Curry) Huffman
