Sincere condolences to all the family…Our mothers were very close over the years. I remember as a child going to Mary and Mervyn’s to visit and also staying for a holiday one time. I got my first cat Topsy from the Reeves farm. Great memories to cherish. Thinking of you in this sad time. Mary was a kind caring woman.
