To Paul and Kids;
My heart is torn right now. Selfishly, I want to be able to visit with Mary as before. The lilt to her voice when she would say, :pretty good" when asked how she was doing or "you betcha" when she wanted me to know, she agreed.
Yet, as we all know, she was extremely strong in the suffering she endured these past two decades. I know she is at peace and looking down with a smile. As she has done in life, she will continue to "mother hen" with love, us all in our daily lives. She has always had the heart of unequivical proportions.
Love you all,
unca mike

To Paul and Family,

I am sorry to hear of Mary’s passing.  I was able to meet Mary only a few times and am grateful to have known her.  She shared kind words of love and encouragement at our wedding and was always welcoming when Sheila and I visited.  My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

Dearest Buyer and Daly Family,
We send our deepest smypathies to all of you. So sorry we are not able to make the funeral but know that we are there in spirit. We said a special prayer with our fellowship at church this morning for all of you and Aunt Mary. I pray you all find compfort in the resting of Aunt Mary. The picture of her in the obituary is beautiful. I remember as a small child, we had reunions at her house in Richwood. I use to think her house was a huge mantion. With all the windows and neat wood work. She was a very sentimental woman. She proved that with her generouse gifts that she would hand make and personalize for the "Bride to Be" or "Mother to Be" or "Family to Be". I also remember living in Marysville and seeing her working away at Bob Evans when I would go in. We will all surely miss her.

Love and Prayers,
Angie, Colin and Brady

Mary will be missed for so many reasons.  We all feel the loss of a truly beautiful person not only on the outside, but also the beauty and warmth inside.  The most important thing is to reflect on all that she has given us.  Her warm smiles and open arms, and the wonderful children she brought into the world.   There is a story I would like to share with you about my Aunt Mary.  It was one of the many stays that I had the pleasure of experiencing as a young boy that sticks out the most.  I was about nine or  ten when I went for a weekend stay; I noticed that the grass in the yards was starting to get really high.  Wanting to give a little back of what Aunt Mary has always given me, I decided to mow it for her.  If you have ever seen the yards you would know why they would have to have a riding lawn mower.  Well this stay the riding lawn mower was broken (hints the tall grass), but wanting to give back just a little of what I was always so freely given I pulled out the old push mower.  Little did I know just what I was getting myself into, but I pushed on.   After word I went back into the house to tell Aunt Mary about what I had done; the tears in her eyes and the pride in her smile is still with me today.  Because of her I strive to all that I do with as much pride as Aunt Mary had in that one smile and those few happy tears.  She is a person that will truly be missed for so much.  In our time of sadness it is important to remember all the good times and wonderful story about such a beautiful soul, and remember that no matter how hard it is for us to go on without  her she is in a much better place with our Lord and other loved ones.

Just wanted you to know that Pat and I thought about the Daly/Buyer clans all day today and am sure you felt our prayers.

I can't think about Mary Clair without remembering the story that the older Benson siblings always told.  Mary C must have been only 4 or 5 when her family moved to the LaRue area and of course were regulars out at the farm for Nanny Benson's Sunday dinners.  On one occasion little Mary was sitting at the table scooping in a piece of pie and exclaimed, "This pie is delishus Mrs. Benshun."  So whenever pie was served for years, someone would lovingly mock little Mary's words.  I can still see her sitting there at the table.

Once again, Mary Buyer has put on a great family "get together". She reminds us what is important in life; family and the strength generated from relationships with your family. May we always remember the strength these relationships bring to us; this helps us to face the many obstacles we endure.
