I am so sorry to hear of Mary's death. I tried to find your address, Gordon, to no avail. If you need to talk, my phone number is 715-853-4100. I have been praying for Mary for the last two years and hope that her passing was peaceful. Please know that I will pray for you, Jeffrey, Christopher and Timothy.

To the family of Mary, I am a nurse classmate of Mary's, and so saddened to hear of her death. She will always live in my heart as a most cheerful and lovable person, even in those days as we struggled to learn our vocation! She must have been a wonderful OB nurse. Thoughts and prayers, Phyllis Winkler

Gordy I was so saddened to hear of your loss. Mary was our Amanda’s nurse when she was born. She was supposed to go off duty around midnight but Nurse Mary stayed with me until our first born was delivered. She held a special place in our hearts too.
