    Sarah, I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was always so welcoming to me. She had a way of making me feel so comfortable. I remember playing games with her at your kitchen table. Her eyes would light up when she smiled and she had a caring heart. I know she loved you dearly as she wanted the best for you in all things. Please know that I'm thinking of you and praying for your family to get through this difficult time. Love, Denise

    I was saddened to hear of the passing of Mary Ann. We grew up in the same neighborhood on Highland Ave in Wellsville and she was a good friend of my oldest sister Sally. I remember her as such a nice girl from a wonderful family. May God give you strength and peace through this difficult time. With deepest sympathy to all of her family. Jim Garee
