Sorry to hear of Mary's passing. I remember when the kids were very small they would "help" her plant her flowers when she was working outside, but I think she enjoyed it anyway.

Deepest sympathies to Ron, Barb and Duane on the passing of your mother. I know she will be missed very much by her family. I have special memories of Aunt Mary down at the restaurant for one. Remember staying at your house when younger for a couple of days during the summer. She is at peace now and with her hubby, Chuck. The whole McConnell family are together now. Miss them all so very much. Rest In Peace Aunt Mary
