Frank, Barbara and Family
It is with great regret that I have learned of Mary’s death which comes of surprise to me. In fact, even had I known, I would not have been prepared. Mary and I went to st Joseph’s grammar & KHs. Although different locations and lifestyles contributed to our not being in touch, Mary and her parents always remained in my fond Kingston memories. My deepest sympathy. Jane Helen Kelly
Barbara, Frank & Family-
I was sincerely saddened to learn of Mary's passing. She was one of the sweetest friends I ever had. I never remember Mary having a bad word to say about anybody in our youth and I doubt she ever changed. I was fortunate to have run into her when she first moved back to Kingston & we exchanged phone numbers. Unfortunately even though we did follow up with a phone call we never did reconnect. My memories are filled with wonderful times at her parent's house. They were so welcoming and loving to all who visited there. Mary will always be part of my fondest memories of when I moved to Kingston and we went to St Joseph's together. She is with the angels now, but she will always be in my heart.
My sympathies to all of you in this great loss.
