Lenore...
My heart goes out to you and your mother at this very sad time. I'm sure she was a wonderful big sister to you your whole life and those memories will be with you forever throughout the rest of yours. At least now she is no longer suffering and is in a better place now. Take care, and let time do its healing. Karin

Dear Aunt Mary and Lenore, I am just devastated about Maryann. My Prayers and my heart are with you.I pray that you will have Gods Graces on you during the horrible time of sorrow. Maryann to me was a beautiful woman, great playmate as kids, with a genuine heart I will remember her always.
She told me when we were little she wanted to be a nurse and so she did and then on to better things she was very successful and independent and I was always proud of her. I will miss her.
Aunt Mary I will call you. All my love and sorrow.

Dear Family, I am so sorry of the passing of Mary Ann. She was so sweet and upbeat. I worked with her for many years at B Braun Medical. I am in sales in the OPM division, where Mary Ann worked with me in the field numerous times. She taught me everything I know about starting IVs with our Introcan Safety IV Catheter. I use her insight and wisdom about nurses and IVs on a daily basis. She will always be in my heart and mind. May she rest in peace. With Sympathy, Randee Kushner

My heart is so heavy and sad at this time.

I can't believe she's gone. We talked on the phone at least once a month. We were pen pals since Mary Ann was 9 yrs old and my grandfather lived with her!
She was a great person and I will miss her dearly!
