    I was very saddened to hear of Mary’s passing. It is indeed an honor to have known Mary for almost 20 years. She was an unbelievable lady with so many wonderful attributes. Her dancing abilities with Bill amazed me! My heart goes out to Bill and the entire family and all those who knew this special woman. We will all miss her very much, but know she will always be with us spiritually.
