    I took care of Mary years ago. She and her family was one of those I never forgot. Such a wonderful and appreciative woman. My sympathy to her family.

    My condolences. Mary was always one of the best parts of showing rabbits in 4-H when I was growing up. She always had a smile for and brought smiles to my family any time we would visit with her. She will be truly missed. The world lost a truly beautiful soul. Gone but never forgotten.

    So sorry for your loss. I loved Mary I remember her and her sister riding my bus to school. After school I saw Herat 4 H when my kids showed rabbits. Always enjoyed her company. She will be missed.
