Dear Dear Mary,
My heart felt prayers are with you as I recall 2 years ago when it was a reality for me.  I would go thru it for you if I could but we know I can't.  There were times my only prayer was "Lord Help" and that is a prayer God hears.
You have been a  loving and devoted wife and God doesn't take one but what He takes care of the other.
I wish I could give you a hug but I don't know when that will be since I am driving and it will depend on the weather but be assured I will be remembering you.

Dear Mary and family,
It seems only yesterday that we were both newly wed couples starting our lives together in LaRue, unfortunately, time marches on. We have many fond memories that we treasure and these will never fade. Take care of yourself and hold on to your family, God's love surrounds all of you in this difficult time.

We know Richard from heart of Ohio dialysis center. My name is angela at age 25 who which I have kidney failure. My fiancé and I both got to know Richard and Mary very well. When I was in the hospital he was too and I went to see him in his room and there was a preacher there so we all hold hands and prayed together, I enjoyed that and prayed to my self for Richard. Chris and I just asked today about Richard because we realized he has not been there and that is when we found out and our hearts fall. Mary you are in our prayers. God bless!!!

As a friend of Lee Ann, I wish to express my concern for her and her family especially her mother, at this time.  
I hope she and all the family can celebrate the life that has passed and continue to build upon the goodness her father brought to this life.
