Mary blessed my life with her kindness and sincere friendship these last 2 years we talked almost daily and shared breakfast on Friday mornings. Her keen sense of worth and witty humor shined in her warm eyes. Her compassionate companionship got me through my husbands terminal illness , and letting my senior dog join him.
The night she died I had a dream I was going to add to my organ donor information that she could have my heart and lungs should she want them.
I’m going to miss my dear best beautiful friend.
Wish we had met sooner
